- Wedding: May 2012
Darling Husband and I were married in May, Darling Husband started a new job in June, and I’m starting a new job in September. I’m filling out my W4 now and I’m confused about how to fill out the Two Earners/Multiple Jobs section since we have both had multiple jobs this year (he had one part-time job from January-May and I had 2 part-time jobs January-May).
I used the IRS Withholding Calculator and it says one of us needs to claim 9 allowances, so I’m not sure if I screwed up or what.
When it asks about my wages from my lowest paying job, does that mean my lowest paying job of 2012? Also, when it asks for highest wages, do we put the most one of us will earn this year at one single job? I just don’t want to be taxed on our full yearly salaries since neither of us will have worked for a full year yet. Sorry if this is confusing, I’m very confused myself! Thanks for reading!
