It's wedding season — a happy time that includes gifts, cake and endless details. Chances are, taxes are the last thing on your mind. But the IRS wants to remind you of a few important steps. Soon, you'll be filing your first tax return as a married person and that could affect how much taxes you should be having withheld. You can check using the IRS Withholding Estimator tool. Then, be sure to give your employer a new Form W-4 with your new information.
If there's a name change, report it to the IRS, the U.S. Postal Service and the Social Security Administration to avoid delay of any tax refund you may be due. Contact your tax advisor with questions, or check here.
