The middle of the year is a perfect time to check your tax withholding, according to an IRS spokesperson.

“Six months is gone,” said Michael Devine with the IRS. “This is a perfect time to find out whether you’re going to get a refund or you’re going to have to pay next year. That’s doing what we call a paycheck checkup or going to irs.gov and using the Withholding Calculator to figure out whether or not you’ve got enough withheld from your paycheck.”

Right now the math is easy.

“Using your end of June pay stubs makes it exactly perfect,” said Devine. “You can basically double everything that’s on there and you’ve got really good numbers to work with.”

Devine says anyone with tax questions can visit irs.gov or call the IRS at 800-TAX-1040.
