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.
Already Tried: I think I should claim 1 for myself and 1 for my wife for a total of 2 deductions.
So, do you suggest
that I claim 1 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 2 total deduction in Line 7 and my wife clain on 1 total in line #7.
I guess I'm not sure which one is better
