So what do the employers do that have payroll the first week in Jan?

What do the companies (e.g,. TurboTax, TaxACT, etc.) that write tax programs do? It takes time to write tax programs, time to test them, time to write instruction manuals (whether on line or in paper form).

Some last minute changes require only changes to numbers in tables, but some require changes in the logic of the programs to follow the tortured logic of the congressmen who write the laws with little logical ability.
