Managing Your Taxes After a Life Event

Organized by type of event, this page provides resources that explain the tax impact of each. Since life events can affect your refund or how much you owe the IRS at tax time, the IRS recommends you use the Tax Withholding Estimator to check and make sure you’re paying the right amount of tax from each paycheck.
