The key might be the "Early Release" nature of the IRS info. I noticed yesterday they still haven't released the 2013 W-4 form, which means they are still scrambling to update all their programs and documents.

I'll say it again. If your taxable income hasn't changed, and given what you said your gross pay is, you should not see an increase in federal income tax withholding due to the new tax rates. There's something else at play and it could be a programming error by your employer, an IRS error in the table, or something else entirely.

One other thing you might do is ask a coworker if they saw a jump in their withholding. Could be something got changed in your personal payroll record by mistake.

Hope you get this solved before long.
