I typically owe $2500-$3000 every year. Why let the Government earn interest on your money?

Because anything I could put it into for such a short period wouldn't yield me anything worthwhile. I don't want to hassle putting it into a CD for 1% and a penalty for early removal. I have two accounts which would net me a whopping less than 1%, so I am not going to mess with it. I like getting a "bonus" so to speak every year. Just my opinion.

Just be careful. If you are too underwithheld you'll have to pay interest & penalty to them.

when in doubt, just withhold what you owed the prior year, that is a safe harbor even if you end up massively under-withheld.

110% if your taxable income is over $150K & you aren't a farmer, but yes. Not a bad idea.

I know logically it doesn't make sense, but I tend to fall into category 1. I like getting a nice "bonus" each year that I can then use for big purchases all at once. It's like a forced savings account. Granted, a savings account that pays no interest, but it's not like interest rates are any good with others right now anyway.

The reason the question is on my mind is that, with the recent changes to our taxes, I'd like to not take a "pay cut" on a monthly basis due to the new laws, so I'm considering reducing my withholding a bit to make up for it. We'll see.

This is what I did, and your second paragraph is exactly why I changed my withholding. I still over-withhold, I just don't do as much.

I voted #1. I can claim two on my tax returns but during the year I withhold for 1 so hope for the best return tax $$ I can get.

I just hope the hospital doesn't take what I owe them for not paying them this year.
