    I wasn't too concerned. With the changes in the witholding tables, my take-home bumped a bit, but I did the math and it looked like it would be OK even if my total tax didn't change.
    I made $5k more, my refund was $1k less, but my bottom-line taxes owed was $500 less than last year, even though my income was higher.

    Had the witholding tables not been adjusted, my refund would have been $500 more, and I probably would have added a deduction to increase my month-to-month take-home.

    That sucks.
    The French are always surprised that the US taxes retirement income.

    My wife and I have always planned it so that we owe a little, not so much as to incur interest and penalties.
    We always put enough aside during the year to cover it and have a bit left over for a treat or two.
