For years, as a single parent, I filed HH on my taxes. I was recently married and filled out a new W4, and wow- they have changed. VERY confusing. I completed it the best I could, following the instructions, and my paycheck shows a 70% reduction in federal taxes taken out. This must be wrong! Other than completing another W4 and just having them withhold extra, anyone know about these new W4's and how to know you are having the right amount taken out?? I checked with my HR, and they are confused as well. I was told that the payroll company suggests that we reach out to the person who does our taxes for assistance- well, that's me.
