QUESTION: Dusty and his wife are expecting twins. They are expecting her to be due in December, and he wonders if he should update his tax withholding. They make $35,000 a year. Is that a good idea? Dave says they can check, but there something to handle with the money first.

ANSWER: It might change it a little. Go online and pull up tax calculator and run the scenario and see how much it will save you to have a double deduction this year. You could back it out that way and see if you need to change it.
