I do not want to have to owe the IRS if i do not have to. I have had no issues in the past doing my taxes online never had to owe the IRS. My w4 was wrong for 2017 for new job I think and they took out the wrong amount of taxes. W4 had 3 withheld but I am a single person with no dependents and was marked as head of household. (as a single person with no dependents i should not be head of household). How do I fix this so I do not have to owe the IRS
First owing money can be a good thing. It means the IRS gave you and interest free loan.. When you get a refund, you gave the IRS an interest free loan. But, many can't save so the answer is you need to go to your employer and fill out a new W-4 form and change your filing. This is a form you get and submit to your payroll department. They will then hold more from each individual paycheck.
Do note that they are currently amending w-4's for the new tax law rules.... You can still file using the old one though.
I hope this was helpful?
