U.S. Treasury: 90% of Americans Will See Larger Paychecks in February

January 12, 2018
OAN Newsroom

The Treasury Department released new withholding tables that ensure many Americans will see higher pay checks.

According to the department, 90-percent of Americans will see larger paychecks starting next month.

“This new guidance means that workers and their families will receive larger paychecks starting in February,” announced Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin.

The money going into the pockets of Americans is a direct result of the tax cuts promised by President Trump.

The changes implemented by the Treasury Department will work with existing W-4’s filed by employees.

This means that American workers don’t have to do anything to receive the savings.

Despite less withholding, it is also expected that tax returns will not be effected.

The average income tax return for 75% of Americans is $2800.

This is expected to remain the same for most American workers, even while their take home pay increases.

The Treasury is working on developing a withholding calculator that will be available in February when employers are required to have the changes made.

Lawmakers are encouraging American workers to check your check next month using the tables to ensure employers are adhering to new withholding guidelines.

Acting IRS commissioner David Kautter said more information will be provided to Americans to help better understand the changes.

    So is this trumps way of buying more votes

  • BillVA

    90% of WORKERS will see larger paychecks, not 90% of Americans.

    The current situation (pre-tax cut) is that 14% of fliers pay zero income tax, and 20% of filers receive “refundable credits” totaling $105 billion.

    I’m not trying to throw cold water on this, but the reality is that there are tons of workers (including 34% of tax filers) who are already net-negative “taxpayers.” I hipe that THEY aren’t going to see more money.

  • 44fraud

    Any way you shuffle the tax tables, IRS (Intentional Ripoff Specialists) rules will always be unconstitutional, because they do not apply the law equally.

    A common misunderstanding among the ignorant taxpayers is that tax refunds are a gift from Uncle Sugar.

  • John Doe

    Let see,wife and I are on social security with pensions from where we both worked.I think we got a raise on the s.s.(being facetious)I had a deduction of$105.00 from my s.s check for medicare the raise part was $53.00 but then they started taking out $34.00 more for my medicare total $139.00.Then the taxes eat up the rest.Work and contribute for 37 years to s.s. and medicare.I’m at a loss for words.

    • 44fraud

      I agree. Time for pitchtorches and forks. Otherwise, the rude and ruling class in D.C. will never get the message.

  • Joe samo

    90% of all democrats will not receive an increase…because there is no increase in welfare.

  • blackspeak

    Its not nearly enough to make a shytload of difference…

    • Nick Rose

      If YOU don’t have a job, no.

      You most of US contributing Americans, yes.

  • deadandwicked

    Thanks Trump. Your The Best POTUS ever. MAGA for Life Baby !!!!

  • Just Sayin

    My husband will receive a $30,000 bonus this year and his company is offering a $5,000 bonus for new hires. I don’t think I could say that if Hillary Clinton was president. I hope people advantage of these opportunities. MAGA

  • Mike Sferra

    The dingbat liberals want food stamps and welfare payments to increase also. For income equality. Just wait, someone will call the the tax cuts racist.

  • Think 2 Moves Ahead

    Sarah Sanders just tweeted the intent of my post yesterday. Proud of America and Trump’s team. “Agree. Will be interesting if any of the lifelong democrat voters will ever see the other side. Remember the Clinton campaign slogan, it’s the economy stupid? The D voters I know will never stop hating since the TV tells them to hate.”

    • CD Ard

      The day they stop twittering hate we will know they lie dead at the bottom of their bird cage.

  • Todd Jamison

    Can we assume liberals/Democrats will return any pay increase they see on their checks?

    • Ash Williams

      That is a bold assumption that may not pay out.

    • Scott Henke

      They can feel free to give it to a good cause: me. ;^)

  • Wet Possum

    Dims do not have to accept the new tax cuts. They may file at the old rates and add tips.

    This cannot be correct! Bernie Sanders tells Vermont that the only winners are “The evil 1%”. Fortunately for America, we elected Trump!

    I’m still waiting for an investigation of Koskinen and Lerner…. the IRS needs to be put on house arrest… ankle bracelets and background investigations on each and every one of these bureaucrats who think we work for them.

  • Derek Dominico

    I wish it was possible to make the other 10% to be just those Trump haters ! lol!

  • NotSure

    Thank-you President Trump! Lord knows I need every dollar I can keep in my pocket expecially after Obamacare wiped out my savings accounts!

    Just remember people, it is the Democrats that said this is a BAD thing that people keep more of their own money! I just wonder how many democrats are going to give the money back when they file their 2018 taxes because it is evil.

    And the democrats HATE it!!!

  • One_way

    Can’t be. That is not what the democrat politicians have been telling us this past year!

  • Jay77

    There was research done into Bernie Sanders plan for one size fits all healthcare for the American people and found if implemented would cost Americans 67% of their paychecks in taxes. One size fits all never works so make sure you don’t vote for him or any other communist or socialist or progressive that runs for office.

    • Jake

      But, could you still keep your doctor?

  • Jay77

    Tax cuts should spur the economy and you won’t see the news on this because the Dems and the left wing media will not give credit where its due and that is to President Trump and the Republicans.

    • One_way

      That’s one good reason to donate to the party (time and money) so come election time they can flood the media with the true facts!

      • CD Ard

        Not the GOP. THEY BACK RINOS…better to donate directly to conservatives running in primaries. The media will refute all facts…always

  • Jay77

    Remember every time someone votes for a Democrat it means higher taxes more government control and more entitlement to illegal immigrants. Just look at Bernie Sanders he wants to give your SS and Medicare to all the illegals and people seeking a free ride at the expense of the American worker.

  • Enigma

  • airstart

    Pelosi calls the bonuses being paid by corporations “crumbs” even Wal Mart’s paying up to $1000 to hourly employs. To most working class folks, $1000 ain’t crumbs. Pelosi is so disconnected from real people who actually work for a living she just don’t get it. She’s a pathetic excuse for a legislator, why do her minions keep electing her?

    • Twinkle Toes

      Good question, I’ve asked myself that at least a thousand times and I still don’t know.

    • Andrew Moore8

      I have studied our enemies ways and I know exactly why she said “crumbs”…..Her people don’t work….her people are advocates of government assistance which means the tax payers pay their way through life….So when they hear the leader of their loser bunch say “it’s crumbs” it is because the leaders of the loser bunch want to convince their following that it is nothing, that is is inconsequential, so the loser following doesn’t start following and voting for someone else. Someone like Trump who is providing something substantial to them. Basically a downplay of events.

      • Vera Orsova

        Judging by her name, Gabby is Romanian. I would guess she makes her living by trolling for Soros and, since she doesn’t speak English, she is using Google translator as her tool. Her SSI? What’s that? 5th year in the raw? So, 4 years under Obama, right? The best thing to so is to ignore Gabby.

        • tedlv

As for the sheet hole comment by Trump….I have traveled the world and let me tell you……Haiti IS a sheet hole as is all the other countries Trump talked about…..Now maybe a libtardonian like yourself cannot take off the rainbow colored glass they wear but the rest of us has and we agree with Trump….at least he is speaking the truth you libtardonians try to hide…..MLK day to fix his mistake??? REALLY, you really believe that? You think a government that can’t do sheet fast can in some way put together something like this in less than 24 hours for MLK day? You make no sense with your ilbtardonian blathering.

      • JR

        The stimulus and other Obama admin policies helped the economy end up where it is now, whether or not you are willing to believe it. I’m personally a fan of cutting all spending by 2% per year, with 5% cut per year to the bloated defense budget until the national debt is cut in half.

        • Nick Rose

          Almost a million dollars of OUR stimulus package money went to Africa to teach them how to wash their genitals after sex.

          Google it. $830,000!

          How did THAT help our economy?

          • JR

            What percentage of that 1 trillion was that? As a leader of the free world, what would you have the US do to help other nations with their AIDS crises. Or would you rather not spend a dime on ‘shithole’ nations while thousands or tens/ hundreds of thousands die due to diseases that can be controlled with informational outreach. See, these people don’t have the benefit that you and I have of understanding why the people around them are dropping like flies. I’m sure you have researched the advocacy of such programs and how they benefit the world in a more holistic approach.

          • Andrew Moore8

            Im sorry libtardonian….but washing your nut sack after sex does nothing to prevent AIDS. Just another failed program under the obummer admin. that wasted our hard earned tax payer money.

          • Janetta Lane

            The Clinton Foundation was a proud sponsor for this. Bill in an interview stated that their Foundation was treating each person in Africa with HIV/AIDS for about $250.00 (US) a year. I wonder after that photo op just how much the Clinton Foundation actually contributed.

            Would be nice to know for sure. They do some good work by all accounts, but what quantity is a slush fund vs going to causes is an unknown quantity.

            Well they built the pyramids let them figure out how wash their own aids sprinklers.

          • JR

            He did loads for Africa. I don’t recall the ‘booing’. W’s legacy is affected mostly by the wars he started (for good or bad) and would likely be the reason for most of the animosity toward him.

          • Nick Rose

            “He started” with the help of Congress and 111 Democrats.

            Obama killed Africans with drones but was applauded at Mandela’s funeral.

      • JR

        Fiscal stimulus during recession is entirely reasonable, however now that those policies have worked and the economy is booming, it’s time to reign in spending and lower the debt. Cutting taxes unnecessarily at this time is folly.

        • Twinkle Toes

          Maybe you can’t relate to us working folks because O’s failure at fixing the recession only worked for the rich and the poor. For the rest of us hard working slobs we are still suffering. O owns the trillion dollar debt with his Obama phones and screwing up our healthcare. Take a hike.

            I’m very much one of the middle class ‘working folk’. Hate to sound like an ass but at this point, if you are able bodied and have 0 job prospects, that’s on you.

            Healthcare could have been so much better with a little republican help. We’ll soon be returning to useless policies and denials/ dropped coverage. That should make you happy, I guess.

            The Obama phone line is part of the disinformation campaign run by the right. It has its roots in programs begun under Reagan, and expanded under Clinton and George W.

            My eyes roll at the ‘always Obama’s fault’ attitude. google : ‘obama phone snopes’ to get a detailed run down of the program. At least make the attempt to get the details before falling back on the low information ‘Obama is always at fault’ stance.

        • Andrew Moore8

          So let me see if I have your libtardonian tax policy correct….In good times tax more….in bad times tax even more??? Somehow you think this is a road to recovery?

        • Andrew Moore8

          Well then lets reign in spending then….lets stop the obummer phone program….lets stop section 8 housing vouchers…Lets stop utility vouchers to the low income…. lets stop welfare….Lets stop stupid payments to SSDI recipients for stupid sheet like being obese….For christ sake you don’t need to park upfront if you are obese you need to park out back and walk your fat azzss to the front door so you can get off the tax payer paid SSDI….Lets stop federal money to sanctuary cities that refuse to obey federal immigration laws.
