Okay it looks like from my early estimate of numbers that I will be getting back a decent amount of money this year from the federal government. I have been upping my allowances every year to try and make it equal out becuase I don't like to let the feds borrow my money all year for free. If anything I would like to owe a little bit. My question is this: Is it Ok to ad a few more allowances to your W4 form to make sure they don't take out too much taxes all year so I don't keep getting these big refunds. Is it illegal to claim more allowances during the year that what you will finally claim on your tax return? Thanks guys. Kevin C.
