Have a Tax Question? Ask a Tax Expert
Thanks for asking your question! I'm sorry to hear about your tax issue and I'm going to try my best to help you understand or resolve it.
Yes, I can help you fill out a W-4 -what do you need assistance with?
at C . spose ... iam single with one son in germany (no ssn)
Enter 0 if you are single
If you are single with one son, I wouldn't go through the entire form, I would just claim Single and 2
On the bottom part of the form in line 5 put "2"
Total number of allowances: 2 ...?
can I put my son from germany on it?
he has NO SSN
You can get him an ITIN
there's plenty of time before the end of the year
How old is your son?
I did not know that
Are you supporting him?
Actually, he has to be a resident of the US, Canada, or Mexico
so if he isn't over here with you you couldn't claim him so your exemptions would be 1
yes I pay child support
so what can I do?
But your child is not living here, so you cannot claim him
Enter "1" on line 5
E F G H?
You don't have to fill out that top portion, it's just for your records
so, on the bottom part, enter "1" in line 5
EFHG is empty
Yes you don't actually have to fill that out
Just the bottom part where your name is
6 and 7
Leave those blank
ok page 2
You don't worry about page 2
I have no house no apartment no car
That's just for your records.
Don't worry about page 2. You only have to fill out the little bottom portion of the W-4 form
where I have to sign it
Where it says "employee signature" above line 8
Iam blind :)
No, it's a confusing form
That's all there is to it. It's a really simple form
Do you need anything else?
how much $ I owe you for that?
Whatever you agreed to with the website.
I don't negotiate payments
I just get paid by the site, based on whether or not you rate me favorably
ok ... 10? Employer identification number (EIN)
I dont have it
line 10 your work will fill out for you
OK thats it :)
Have a good day!

You have a great day too!
