Join IRS on Thunderclap to Promote a National “Paycheck Checkup”
The IRS invites the payroll community to join @IRSnews to support an IRS Thunderclap campaign promoting a national “Paycheck Checkup.”
Following major tax law changes, the IRS is urging all taxpayers to check their tax withholding to ensure they have the right amount of tax taken out of their paychecks. Too little withheld could mean a tax bill or penalty. And with the average refund topping $2,800, some may prefer to get more money in their pay now.
Thunderclap is a social media platform that will automatically post a message to participants’ Facebook, Twitter or Tumblr accounts to support an initiative. To sign up for the Paycheck Checkup Thunderclap:
Follow this link: http://thndr.me/7BvGKI
Select “Support with: Facebook | Twitter | Tumblr.” (Choose one, then repeat the process to select more platforms or a second account.)
Authorize Thunderclap to post this one-time message by clicking the “Add My Support” tab, and following the prompts to input username and password.
On Thursday, March 29, at 2 p.m. EST, Thunderclap will automatically post: “IRS urges you to perform a Paycheck Checkup today to make sure your tax withholding is right for you. http://thndr.me/TRRWef” to all participating social media accounts. The link goes to the recently updated IRS Withholding Calculator.
This Thunderclap effort is part of a broader IRS “Paycheck Checkup” campaign to encourage people to review their tax withholding. The IRS appreciates your assistance and continued partnership.
