Default Tax cuts/ Bigger check??

So, my paycheck was $310 more for the exact same hrs than it was 3 months ago.
Anyone else see an increase?
Oh, and we have not recieved a raise from the company.

$310 more? Do you get paid biweekly or monthly?

My weekly check difference is $29.44 on my base salary. My company was late to changing so they owed me 4 weeks back taxes and it came out to $50 something per week with a commission check included.

My pay checks very a lot so itís hard for me to figure it out. The first week mine hit was over $230 and I am paid weekly but my company sent an email saying it was backdated for the last 4 weeks. I figured it would be around $55 to $60 per week but on my salary check it was the $29.44 last week.

I got a whopping $8/week increase on a weekly salary check. However, I claim as much as I can so I don’t loan the guberment interest free money. Always get back a nice return, so it’s worked out well.

That's wierd, I claim 0 dependents and usually get a return of 8 or 9k.
Of course my company does the paperwork for me.

Got $52 a month take home...since what seems like almost half is taken for taxes & health care ins etc, I just double it in my mind & make myself the statistic the news touted as the average middle income would see 1100-1200 a year. Seems like squat but gotta be positive and look at it like someone handing you 6 bones at the end of the year to help with the deer lease

I'm in the oil patch/ gas compression side & we took a 10% cut when the bottom fell out a couple years ago and mostly hope the biz incentives this deal focused on help our Co enough to get it back. I know for certain this is the goal from my casual chats with hr.

I will say chatter & activity has upped a click in my territory recently...so I'm digging the direction this cut likely helped springboard

We got a notice from Teacher Retirement about a month ago stating that we were both going to lose $10 a month thanks to Obamacare. They also jumped our detectable up to $5K BTW. Then we got another notice from Teacher Retirement about a week ago stating that combined, the wife and I were going to get a $200/mo. increase in our pay due to tax cuts from Trump. How anybody can continue tot vote for dems is beyond me . . . unless they don't work at all and don't want to.

I compared this years checks to last years with the same hours.

Once I factor in my annual raise I saw $0.00 on one check and $8.00 on another.
The amount of the "bump" was exactly the dollar amount of my raise x the hours worked.
However, I did pay more for health care and more in taxes for SS and Medicare, so in the end it is a WASH for me so far.

My wife's part time paychecks shows little to no bump either.

I guess the Trump windfall missed my house. .

If there is extra money to be had, I'm guessing I'll see it when the 2018 taxes are hashed out in 2019.

If your getting a nice return then the government is borrowing your money interest free...if you break even thatís the best case scenario.

I am still off from back surgery but my wife's pay went up about $250, she gets paid bi-monthly. I did get a $1000 bonus like many others got from the tax break because being on sick leave I am still on the payroll.

Got a nice bump! Better set aside for the property increases that seem to be inevitable! Happy with the increase for sure.

I can't imagine some people on here getting $8k refunds! That is not ideal to overpay during the year!
