Do i put exempt at the bottom of my w-4 form when i am single and starting job?

NO >>> NEVER claim exempt.  Complete the W-4 worksheet if you need to compute your withholding ... but if you are single and still being claimed by your parents then enter a zero on line 5.  If you are not being claimed as a dependent and you are single with no kids of your own then you can enter a 1 on line 5.
