I have a question about the DissoMaster calculation for

Hi. I have a question about the DissoMaster calculation for CS/SS. We have 3 kids. Because I make a significantly more amount of money than she does, she is a teacher, she is required to contribute to a pension, etc., we agreed that I would always claim 2 kids and her 1. A CPA ran the numbers and said just her claiming 1 kid, she is still paying minimal taxes. If she claimed 2 kids, her tax savings wouldn't really be that significant. However, with me claiming 2 kids vs 1 kid, it is a HUGE tax difference.What is weird is, the Disso's Guideline calculation of # ***** exemptions I should put on my W4 is way off. If I followed that, I would end up $20k short in taxes each year. And she would end up getting a $5k refund. But, then there is the "Proposed, Tactic 9". When plugging in the # ***** exceptions it shows, it pretty much evens things out.For permanent CS, do judges allow the Tactic 9 calculation? The calculation is more realistic, considering, if we went by "Guideline" I would be paying more CS and $20k in more taxes each year. The "Guideline" calculation seems to artificially increase my monthly take home by a significant amount.
