Does anyone know when these changes should take place? My company changed our withholding two weeks ago, my husband's company hasn't done any changes yet. Is there a date it needs to be done by?

Here is what IRS has told employers in IRS Pub 15:

"Employers should implement the 2018 withholding tables as soon as possi-
ble, but not later than February 15, 2018.

Continue to use
the 2017 withholding tables until you implement the 2018
withholding tables. The new withholding tables are de-
signed to work with the Forms W-4, Employee's Withhold-
ing Allowance Certificate, that your employees previously
gave you.

To help employees determine their withholding, the IRS
is revising the withholding tax calculator available at
IRS.gov/W4App. The IRS anticipates that this calculator
will be available by the end of February. Encourage your
employees to use the withholding calculator to determine
if they should give you a new Form W-4 for 2018.

The IRS is also working on revising Form W-4 for 2018. The calcu-
lator and revised Form W-4 can be used by employees
who wish to update their withholding in response to the
new law or changes in their personal circumstances in
2018, and by workers starting a new job.

Until a new Form
W-4 is issued, employees and employers should continue
to use the 2017 Form W-4. For more information, go to
IRS.gov/NR1036 .

Just as info - I called them this morning. What they did was put the 2018 federal withholding schedule into the computer last week (just came out last week), and told it to go back to January 1st of 2018 and compute what the withholding should have been. In my case I was over paying, as I'm sure most people have been because the new withholding schedule takes less out then the 2017 schedule. So the extra money/over payment was put back into this check, this pay period, as an adjustment.

Thanks for sharing this, OP and reed303. Our local news stations have been making viewers aware of this situation and advising people to check their pay stubs for accuracy. The irs calculator should be updated soon.
