what does federal withholding exemptions 99 means and single 99

    Where is it asking or telling you this?  I think it means you should claim 99 exemptions on your W4 at work so they don't take out anywithholding.
    • on my paystub its says federal single99 and state single-99 ,They was suppose to had take out tax nowi think they mess me up because my federal block is zero
    Yes it means you put down Single and 99 exemptions at work so they didn't take out any withholding.  You need to give them a new W4 to change it.

    To change your withholding at work you need to give your employer a new W4 form. You can ask him for one or Turbo Tax can help you fill it out. Go to

      People come to TurboTax AnswerXchange for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

      1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
      2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
      3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
      4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
      5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
