Taking steps now can lessen your potential tax hit for the year: David Peters on CNBC

Updated: Jun 27

When it comes to filing taxes, you may be inclined to push it out of your mind until a new year rolls around and the holiday leftovers are long gone. But if you unexpectedly owed in 2023, there are steps you can take now to lessen your potential hit when next year's tax season rolls around.

Mid-year is an excellent time to take a holistic view of your finances and make adjustments as needed to set yourself up for a more predictable (and palatable) tax season. As I recently shared with CNBC, one step you can take is to increase your federal withholding by updating your Form W-4. The IRS Tax Withholding Estimator tool can help you determine what you may owe before changing the W-4 form with your employer.

If you're self-employed or working part-time and you're receiving income that does not have taxes withheld, make sure you are making quarterly estimated tax payments to the IRS to avoid potential penalties.
