Even if you only work during the summer and fall, you still need to check your tax withholding for 2018. Your tax return will likely be affected by the major changes to come from the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act passed at the end of last year. Changes that may affect you include tax rates and bracket changes, an increase to the standard deduction and the elimination of personal exemption plus other deductions.
You can check your withholding amounts using the IRS Withholding Calculator.
