New Smartphone App Can Give Employees Instant Raise

September 8, 2011 ( – The American Payroll Association (APA) launched a Paycheck Maximizer smartphone application to help workers potentially add hundreds of dollars to their paycheck instantly. 

The free application helps workers properly fill out a Form W-4 to better match the taxes withheld from each paycheck with their actual tax liability. 

According to a press release from the APA, last year the average tax refund was over $3,000, an overpayment of more than $250 a month in taxes. The Paycheck Maximizer app will make it easier for America’s workers to more accurately fill out their Form W-4 to put the money back in their paycheck. 

The free app is available for iPhone and Android smartphones. To download it, visit
