Employers Should Use New Withholding Tables ASAP but no later than Feb. 15

The IRS has issued New 2018 Income Tax Withholding Tables in Notice 1036.

For the time being, employers can continue to use the employee's existing W-4 form exemptions until a new W-4 form is released. 

However, employees should exercise caution - if you currently claim multiple exemptions, remember that exemptions are replaced in 2018 by a larger standard deduction and child credit, so you should review how the new tax law will affect your 2018 return. 

I recommend consulting with your tax advisor on this matter (preferably me!)
