W-4 Flyer

While you work, stop paying for war--a flyer that explains how to adjust your W-4 formWhile You Work… Stop Paying For War
Controlling Federal Income Tax Withholding with W-4 Resistance

Note: The IRS released withholding tables for 2018 in January. They had announced that people probably would not have to change their W-4 form, despite the passage of the tax overhaul bill in December 2017. Working through the new formula, the numbers seem to come out about the same as previous years. If you have a salaried job with withholding, the new formulas should kick in with February paychecks. Look at your withholding to see if it is at a level that works for your resistance style; if not, you can change your W-4 anytime.

For a more thorough explanation, see our Practical #1 guide.
