If I claim 20 on my w4 and do not owe the IRS any

This answer was rated:

If I claim 20 on my w4 and do not owe the IRS any money at the end of the year, is there any penalty to fear?
Hello and thank you for using Just Answer. If you will have no tax liability for 2008 you can be exempt from tax withholding. To qualify, your certifies on Form W-4 to your employer that you expects to have o federal income tax liability for the current year, and had no federal income tax liability in the preceding year.

Reply to Marvin,EA's Post: it is not that I can claim exempt status...I have a ton of right offs that make it so I need very little federal tax taken from my paychecks...I have been adjusting my exemptions and currently claim 15 and still have too much taken from my biweekly check, that is why I asked if i can basically keep going up without fear of penalty
