View Poll Results: What's your strategy for tax withholding?
I try and over-withhold so that I get some back at tax time 41 42.71%
I try and withhold the exact amount I'll need 36 37.50%
I try and under-withhold and just make up the difference at tax time 14 14.58%
What the hell are you talking about? Strategy? I just check the boxes and see what happens. 5 5.21%

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.

We generally don't go out of our way to overpay, but we always do and get a decent return each year. I like getting the return because we almost always use the money on something that we've needed but didn't have the money for, or a trip, etc.

This.

It helps after buying a house because we can take that money and put it back into the house.

I'd like to do that and add an overhang in our backyard. We'll see though.

Last year we got close to $9000 back and that was before the whole buying a house thing.

Wow. That's a ton back. When we still had daycare, we were getting back $4,000-$6,000.
