The IRS has all of your 2016 tax information, from your marital status and number of dependents to your itemized deductions. It would be straightforward to have the IRS run your 2016 tax data using the new 2018 tax legislation so that each U.S. household can see how the new tax bill affects them.
You could then log on to the IRS site and, presto, be shown your 2016 income subject to the new 2018 tax bill.
Certainly our senators and representatives want each U.S. household to have the ability now, rather than on April 15, 2019, to judge if they fare better or worse under Congress’ new tax bill.
