How do I file my taxes with two W2’s have list a different number of dependents?
Asked by: flash
I have two W2’s this year for my tax return because my company was bought out by another company a few months ago. I understand that you add up the two to get what you put in your tax return. However, somehow in my previous companies W2, I have 3 dependents claimed…which is an error because I am a single 26 y/o with 0 dependents. On my new W2 I have 1 dependent claim as I was advised to do. Is there going to be an option to specify the number of dependents I claimed at which point during the year if I’m using TurboTax or another similar website? Thank you.
So, when it asks me how many dependents I claimed or how many exemptions/allowances…do I specify 3 or 1?
