Instead you need a good crystal ball...

This is another thing that infuriates me about the current tax system. DW's job is in the process of undergoing an extreme flux and her income can drop is much as 30%. Or more. Or less.

Here is an aside warning about overpaying taxes. ACA/Obamacare. Say you don't chose to participate or your current health coverage doesn't qualify (we might fall into the later catagory), the only way the IRS can currently enforce the penalty is to withhold it from your tax refund.

So the old saw about the best tax return is to owe Uncle Sam $1 is gettin more profound.
