  • The Individuals page shares information about:
    • Withholding – How the IRS Withholding Calculator can help taxpayers perform a "Paycheck Checkup."
    • Credits – Changes to the child tax credit, additional child tax credit, and information about the new credit for other dependents.
    • Deductions – The law changed standard and itemized deductions.
