Don't forget the sales tax, both state and federal gas tax, and , oh, lets not forget if (ahem, when) Obama care passes, the added $300 or so a month in added "payments" to the IRS.....
So, next time your at the 7-11 and that fat slob with 4 kids is buying beer on their welfare card, feel free to thank them for your added tax burden.
Feel free to write your congressman and ask him why he is so fiscally irresponsible.
Feel free to write your "president" and ask why he has wracked up 7 trillion dollars in national debt. That is of course if he isn't golfing or vacationing on your dime.
Feel free to publicly ask "why"
Feel free to vote.
Of course, all of this will probably result in an audit by the IRS and the DOJ, as well as Al Sharpton coming out to call you a racist for trying to deny needed monies to minorities. With any luck, however, you can get a good paying job with the diplomatic corp and work your debt off by volunteering for a diplomatic post in somewhere safe, like Benghazi.....
Rant off.

The Tax poem

Tax his land; tax his bed; tax the table at which he's fed.
Tax his tractor; tax his mule; teach him taxes are the rule.
Tax his work; tax his pay; he works for peanuts anyway!
Tax his cow; tax his goat; tax his pants; tax his coat.
Tax his ties; tax his shirt; tax his work; tax his dirt.
Tax his tobacco; tax his drink; tax him if he tries to think.
Tax his cigars; tax his beers; If he cries, tax his tears.
Tax his car; tax his gas; find other ways to tax his a___.
Tax all he has, then let him know that you won't be done ‘til he has no dough.
When he screams and hollers, then tax him some more; tax him ‘til he's good and sore.
Then tax his coffin; tax his grave; tax the sod in which he's laid.
Put these words upon his tomb, “ Taxes drove me to my doom...”.
When he's gone, do not relax; its time to apply the inheritance tax.

Congress already passed "Obamacare". The President signed it. They are just now reading it and trying to figure out how to administer it. It takes effect Jan. 1st. Let the fines (taxes) begin!

That number is not the number of dependents, it's a number calculated on a worksheet, and is based on deductions. 0 is for people who are claimed as dependents by other people (like high school students who are still largely supported by their parents.) You get to 2 by the standard deduction + the personal deduction.

I understand what taxes are, but I guess you are right in that I don't know how they "work". I won't take this personally.

So is 02 more or less taken out per pay check than 00?

So it seems like nobody knows what they are talking about . I regret not taking such a course in college; I took useless calculus I-II instead of practical math.

Here's the form you use to determine what number you put in:

http://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/fw4.pdf

Read lines A & B and you will see if you can't be claimed as a dependent, and are single and only have 1 job you will end up with 2 as your final answer. I have 2 on my W-4, and I receive a little back every year, about equal to 1 paycheck.

While you are dealing with this think about starting a long term investment program of some sort. There may be tax advantages and a big pay off down the road.
