Hi Sguptarph,  It can be tricky finding that sweet spot of just the right amount of tax withheld so you don't owe and don't receive too large of a tax refund.

 

There is a W-4 Calculator that will take you step-by-step through the worksheet,

Once you complete the form, give it to your employer. Then, keep a close eye on your next few paychecks to see how the changes impacted your federal income tax withholding.  I understand you want less withholdings and more in your paycheck, so it will be a good idea to compare your 2021 total tax from your 2021 tax return to your year-to-date federal withholdings from your most recent paycheck to make sure you are still having enough withheld and will not owe when filing your 2022 tax return.

 

I hope you find this helpful!
