The Financial Suite of Microsoft Money contains a Tax Estimator Worksheet. The goal of the Tax Estimator is to help the average Money user estimate their taxes. It is not intended for individuals with small businesses who need to track tax information on a Schedule C tax form.
The purpose of Tax Estimator, is to help the average person become aware of the general state of their taxes year-round. Many people pick some random number of withholdings and discover in April that they withheld too much or too little. Withholding too much is in essence providing an interest-free loan to the government; withholding too little can result in a large tax payment due in April and possible fees.
The Tax Estimator takes into consideration normal personal paycheck income reported on 1040 tax forms. Standard deductions reported on a Schedule A tax form are also taken into consideration when estimating how much you will owe in federal withholding.
