Why fool with a spreadsheet? Take out a pay stub, project income and withholding forward to December, estimate your other numbers (divs, cap gains, assorted deductions, etc.) and then just put them into last year's form. That should take you about ten minutes, and will give you a pretty good idea of where you are, notwithstanding the lower tax rates.
