The IRS has released Notice 1036, Early Release Copies of the 2019 Percentage Method Tables for Income Tax Withholding as well as a final version of the 2019 W4, Employee’s Withholding Allowance Certificate.

Exemption allowances have gone up only slightly for 2019:

Pay Frequency 2018 Allowance 2019 Allowance
Weekly $79.80 $80.80
Biweekly $159.60 $161.50
Semimonthly $172.90 $175.00
Monthly $345.80 $350.00
Quarterly $1037.50 $1050.00
Semiannually $2075.00 $4150.00
Annually $4150.00 $4200.00
Daily $16.00 $16.20

Although the draft version of the W4 contained significant changes, the IRS, after a lengthy comment period, decided to keep the form largely unchanged from 2018.
