Thanks for the input.  However, when I look at the tax tables that Leslie
sent out last week, I do not see a difference between her tables and the
ones I put into the system.  The ONLY difference that I can see is that the
tables sent out have the "credit" amount put in for the number of
dependents claimed, where our table only has one number for the credit,
which is all we have ever put into the system.  Also, the credit amount on
the WESD table shows the credit amount as $15.00, and I believe it really
should be $15.25, as the allowance, i.e., credit amount, changed this year
to $183 annually, which is $15.25 per month.  Last year it was $180
annually, which made the $15.00 per month accurate.

Perhaps I am missing the point big time here????  Anyway, please send out
the WESD tables again so that we can look and compare.

Thanks again!
Michele
