2018 federal income tax calculator

You can estimate how much your tax refund or balance due might be this year, simply by plugging a few numbers into the Refund Estimator. Knowing now what you can expect later can help with your financial plan for the upcoming year.

Please note: This online refund estimator provides a basic estimate and does not include detailed deduction information. The refund or balance due amount could be more or less depending on your actual tax situation (including, but not limited to Child Tax Credit and/or Earned Income Credit).
