What the IRS is Up to

Not happy with your tax return results? IRS encourages taxpayers to update withholding.

Whether you had an unexpected tax bill this year or received an abnormally large refund from Uncle Sam, take this time after tax season to review your pay stubs and Form W-4 for the remainder of 2024. Consult with your CPA and refer to the IRS’s online Tax Withholding Estimator to ensure your current year withholdings are correct.

2024 Tax Brackets and Standard Deduction

The standard deduction for married couples filing jointly for tax year 2024 rises to $29,200, an increase of $1,500 from 2023. For single taxpayers and married individuals filing separately, the standard deduction rises to $14,600 for 2024, an increase of $750 from 2023; and for heads of households, the standard deduction will be $21,900 for tax year 2024, an increase of $1,100 from 2023.

529 Savings Plan and FAFSA Update for 2024

New ‘Grandparent Loophole’ allows nonparents to contribute to a child’s 529 plan without affecting financial aid eligibility. Previously, distributions from any nonparent were included as untaxed student income, which reduced eligibility for need-based aid. Congress now allows $35,000 of unused funds to be rolled over tax-free into a Roth IRA.
