Have a Tax Question? Ask a Tax Expert
Hello, I'm Robin. Welcome to JustAnswer. I'm reviewing your question now and typing up my reply. I'll post that in just a few moments.
When you ask about exempt, are you referring to claiming exempt on your W4 for withholding?
I will advise than about when you can claim exempt until you post.
You can claim exemption from withholding for the current year (this means any part of the year as well) only if both the following situations apply:
A person is not supposed to claim exempt on their withholding unless they meet the 2 reasons I stated above.
Even if you were allowed to do this in the past it is not correct. You asked can you claim exempt so the answer is no. You are not exempt.
You can increase your allowances but you cannot and are not supposed to claim exempt for withholding.
