It is kind of vague, and I could see how a non-math person might balk at it.

Figure out what sort of difference there was in past years for net vs total expense due to the tax reduction. Say you generally get back 10% in your taxes. So offer for him to pay 90% of his proportionate share of the monthly expense, and then work out any lingering over/under after tax time.

He doesn't want to pay you 100% of his normal share of the full cost and assume you'll pay him back his 'overpayment credit' once you determine the net cost at tax time.

You want him to pay you SOMETHING. Tell him that paying zero is nowhere close to what the proper amount will end up being.
