In January 2018.

The IRS has delayed the release of the 2018 tables due to the changes brought by the tax reform bill.

On December 26, 2017 the IRS released the following statement:

“The IRS is working to develop withholding guidance to implement the tax reform bill signed into law on December 22.  We anticipate issuing the initial withholding guidance in January, and employers and payroll service providers will be encouraged to implement the changes in February. The IRS emphasizes this information will be designed to work with the existing Forms W-4 that employees have already filed, and no further action by taxpayers is needed at this time. “

Soon after the IRS issues the 2018 withholding tables, they will be implemented, tested and then included inside Payroll Mate.
