how many allowances should I put down on my W-4?
Asked by: megan
I am a single male and just got a new job and I have never filled out a w-4 form before, I was hoping I can get some help.
I live in New York City but work in Long Island.
I will be making about $ 46,000 in a year
These are the taxes currently being taken out:
state w/h ny
state sdi ny (not sure what this is)
I noticed no nyc tax was taken out.
i did the irs withholding calculator and it told me to put down 6 allowances and this doesn’t seem right, where did they get 6 allowances from? I did the worksheet and got only 2 allowances, being single and having only one job.
and because i put down 2 allowances, will i get a refund next year or will i owe money?
