When the ball drops on New Year's Eve, are your taxes going up?
The new tax laws kick in on January first.
Tax Adviser at H&R Block Laura Aldrighetti said, "Most Americans are gonna find that their taxes stay the same."
If you make less than 150-thousand dollars, you'll be paying about the same to Uncle Sam.
After a tough fight in Congress, the Bush-era tax cuts will remain in place for rich and poor alike.
But the more you make, the better the break.
There's one change guaranteed to put a few more bucks in your pocket.
"One of the big changes is that Congress passed a Social Security tax holiday," said Aldrighetti.
Technically not a tax cut, but a two percent increase in take-home pay.
Looking for a financial resolution???
Steve Moore of the Wall Street Journal said, "Remain very cautious about your spending, invest carefully, don't throw the Hail-Mary pass, and if you've got a job keep it."
A new year and new laws, but the same old taxes.
