    ALLOWANCES for the W-4 form for this time and purpose.
    Very simple and easy fill in the W-4 correctly and completely and just claim Single and -0- ZERO Allowances and then sign the completed W-4 form and give it to you employer at that time for the purpose of your federal income tax withholding amounts if any would be required to be withheld depending on the amount of your GROSS income for each pay period at that time.
    And then if they should withhold any amount of $ $ out for the FIT amount as an estimated advance payment of any possible income tax liability that you might have when you correctly complete your 1040 income tax return during the 2013 income tax filing season and you receive your W-2 form from your employer around the middle of January 2013 and if you have a $ $ amount in the Box 2 for FIT you will get a credit for that $ $ amount on your 1040 income tax return and might qualify to get some are all of the withheld amount back as a REFUND amount when you correctly complete your 1040 income tax return print a copy for your records and sign the copy to send to the correct IRS address for processing during the 2013 tax fining season.
    Hope that you find the above enclosed information useful. 07/08/2012

    if you are a minor, a dependent, a student, did not have an income tax liability the previous year, and do not expect to earn up to $ 5950, you can file exempt
