Claiming 1 vs 2 on W2?
Asked by: tmoran
If I am married with one job and my husband is getting paid more than me should I claim 1 or 2 on the W2? I usually claim 0 but times are tough and I need every cent I can get on my paycheck. Is claiming 2 even valid? I just figured 1 for me and 1 for him. But taxes always confused the heck out of me.
I make $ 30k My husband makes $ 60k so I am not sure what bracket that puts us in? & I don’t usually do taxes, my husband does but he is away on business and I just got a new job so I am not sure what to put down. I don’t want to owe at the end of the year but I don’t want a lot taken out. If my tax returns were $ 50 that would be fine by me.
