I'm looking at my pay stub for what will be direct deposited tomorrow. I work for a major entity and make over $100,000 per year. I take one exemption for myself. In looking at my deductions, that have been updated for the new tax code, my federal tax withholding went up! Deductions for federal tax went up by $149 for the latest two week pay period. I am comparing more than apples to apples, as my gross pay for the current two-week pay period where I'm paying more federal taxes is actually $200 LESS than the previous pay period because of a small bonus.
Who can I write in Washington to thank them for this "incredible," I mean "huuuge" tax benefit?
