I just got married. What do I claim on my W-4? My wife and I combined make over 150k per year and are both unclear about how we should file on our respective W-4.
So, do you suggest that I claim one allowance in line 5 and then check the married, but withhold at a higher single rate in Box 3 and my wife do the same thing? Or, I can claim two total deductions on Line 7 and my wife can claim one total on Line 7? I guess I’m not sure which one is better.
