If you’re starting a job or if your marital status has changed recently, then you’re probably wondering how to fill out your W-4 form at work. Here’s what you need to know to determine if you should claim 0 or 1 on W-4.

Before you begin to read this post, please note that this is general advice. Only you can determine your circumstances and what’s best for your finances. Always check with a tax professional or an HR representative if you aren’t sure what to claim on your tax form. That said, some general guidelines can help you understand what it means when you fill out your W-4.

Editor’s note: To give you the most expertise, I’ve invited H&R Block accountant Richard Herring to address this issue today. Again, although Richard is an expert in accounting, his advice should be taken as a general guideline to help you make informed decisions about filling out your W-4. So take it away, Richard!

Filling Out a W-4

If you’ve received a W-4 form, it can be a little confusing and even a little daunting. What is a W-4? The short answer is that the W-4 is an IRS form. An employee fills out that particular form to claim their allowances after they begin a new job.

This tells your employer’s payroll company how much they should or shouldn’t withhold from your check-in taxes. It also describes the IRS how many dependents you have; and if you should receive child tax credits or benefits from the IRS. You can use the W-4 to withhold extra money from your paycheck too.

When you start a new job, your employer will hand the W-4 to you. Usually, you’ll receive a paper copy. You will be asked to write down how many allowances you want on the W-4 form and the attached worksheet. If you Googled, “Should I claim 0 or 1 on W-4?” then read on.

It’s important to note that the guidelines for claiming 1 or 0 on W-4 have changed in 2021. We will also tell you how it was in the past before 2021, so you will be fully aware of the history.

How has the W-4 Changed for 2021?

There’s a significant change that’s happened to W-4 forms—for 2021, and you do not use the W-4 form to claim withholding allowances anymore! The W-4 form has been changed for 2021 and looks different than the W-4 forms from previous years. Every so often, the IRS changes the documents to make them more accessible for people to understand and to correspond with changes in tax rules and exemption guidelines.

On the 2021 W-4 form, you can still claim an exemption from withholding. If you happen to qualify for an exemption, you can claim it by writing “Exempt” in the space below Line 4(c). It’s important to note that the exemption is only suitable for a year, and then you will need to fill out another W-4. It would help if you talked to your financial professional before claiming exemption because there are very specific guidelines on when you can and should claim an exemption.

If you add extra withholding on Line 4(c), more will be withheld from your paycheck and earmarked for taxes. In some cases, additional withholding can result in a bigger tax refund at the end of the year (but keep in mind that your paycheck will be less each pay period).

If you have a side job, you can set up withholding on your taxes too. Use the IRS Tax Withholding Estimator to determine how much tax you can withhold. Setting up a withholding will help you, so you don’t end up owing a surprising balance at the end of the tax year.

Should I claim 0 or 1 on W-4?

If you are wondering, “Should I claim 0 or 1 on W-4?” the answer has changed as of this year. Due to changes in the 2021 guidelines, the number (0 or 1) you write down on your W-4 form will no longer significantly impact your paycheck during the year. However, if your form asks for a 1 or 0, take a look at the date on the top of the W-4. Your employer may have given you an older form.

No matter what you fill out, it won’t significantly change your tax refund at the end of the year for 2021. So, it is no longer essential to understand how allowances work and calculate them when filling out the W-4 form. In 2021, you can’t claim allowances on the W-4 form.

In many ways, this 2021 change to tax guidelines makes life much simpler when you’re filling out a W-4.

What Is a W-4 Form Anyways?

As I have mentioned earlier, the W-4 is an IRS form. Your employer usually gives you this form when you begin a new job or if something changes in your life that might affect your tax status (you may need to request an update from your employer).

If you had filled out a W-4 before 2021, you don’t need to fill out a new form, despite the recent 2021 changes to tax laws.

If you want to make changes to your W-4, you can change your withholding amount and exemptions. Note that even if you make changes to the form, you can’t wait until the end of the year and pay all your taxes in a lump sum.

Even though this might seem like a great idea to some people, the IRS will not allow you to do it. Instead, you will need to instruct your employer to withhold enough tax from each paycheck by filling out a W-4 form, or you will need to make quarterly estimated tax payments.

This calendar shows that the tax deadline is April 15th, get out your calculator and supplies to figure out what taxes you will owe.

Can I Change the Number of Allowances that I Claim on a W-4?

For 2021, you do not use the W-4 form to claim withholding allowances any longer. It has changed! You might be wondering what it means to claim a 0 or 1 on a W-4, but it’s important to note that in 2021, you don’t use the W-4 form to claim withholding allowances.

This new rule applies whether you claim 1 or 0 on a W-4 form (or anything in-between).

History of W-4 Before 2021

Before 2021, the more allowances you claimed, the fewer taxes were withheld from each paycheck. This meant that you would get more money each paycheck, but in return, you would receive a lower tax refund, no refund, or even a tax bill, depending on the filing status you chose (a 0, 1, or so on).

If you claimed zero allowances on your pre-2021 W-4, the maximum amount of taxes was withheld from each of your paychecks. As a result, you’d likely get a big tax refund from the IRS at the end of the season. But your allowances were not the only factor. You may still have ended up without a refund, or you may have ended up owing the government, depending on your taxable income and other factors in your filing status.

Historically, before 2021, I would have recommended you claim zero allowances on your W-4 form if someone was claiming you as a dependent. If you were struggling to save money for your taxes, claiming zero was also a good idea. You would most likely have received a lump sum at the end of the tax season.

If you were single and someone claimed you as a dependent, then claiming zero on a W-4 would make sense. When someone claimed you as a dependent, they paid less on their taxes because they benefited from your exemption. On the other hand, your taxes might have been a little higher. This didn’t necessarily mean you wouldn’t get a tax refund from the IRS, though. It would depend on your income.

Claiming zero allowances on your W-4 made sense if you were single or if you struggled with saving money. Claiming zero could be helpful if you didn’t have an emergency fund, wanted to pay off debt, or we’re working to save.

If you want a tax return, you don't need to spell it out, but you need to use a calculator and fill out the form correctly.

When Should I Claim 1 on W-4?

In 2021, it doesn’t matter if you claim 1 or 0 on your W-4. Your taxes will not be affected because you can no longer claim allowances.

In the past, claiming one allowance meant that a little less tax was withheld from your paycheck over the year than if you’d claimed zero allowances. If you were single and had only one job and one source of income, you would most likely receive a refund from the IRS during tax season. The refund would be smaller if you claimed one rather than claiming a zero.

In the past, it was beneficial to claim one allowance, depending on your spending habits. If your filing status was single and you were responsible with money, then claiming one could be helpful. It would allow you to get more money on each of your paychecks than if you’d claimed zero allowances. Having an extra $500 a paycheck because you claimed one was great if you were paying down high-interest credit card debt or had another financial concern.

Any time you get extra money from a paycheck, it’s helpful to pay off debt. If you don’t have a high-interest credit card, put the money in savings or use it towards long-term investments like a 401(k) plan. Even though the 2021 W-4 form has changed, you should still save money whenever possible.

It no longer matters if you claim a 0 or a 1 on W-4. Your taxes won’t be affected anymore. In 2021, you can’t claim allowances, but that could always change again in the future. It’s helpful to understand the history of allowances and know what it meant to claim a one or a zero.

Should I claim 0 or 1 on W-4? The Conclusion

In conclusion, should you claim 0 or 1 on your W-4? It no longer matters because you can’t withhold allowances anymore in 2021. However, if you want a tax refund and you’re nervous about taking enough out of your paycheck (or struggle with saving), then you can withhold extra money online 4(c) of your W-4 form. Each paycheck, that amount will be put aside for taxes. At the end of the year, if you break even or owe less than you’ve withheld, you’ll get a refund!

Couples like this man and woman should sit down together to review finances and calculate monthly expenses.

[NEW] How to Fill Out the W-4 Form (New for 2020) | w4 – POLLICELEE

If you’re filling out a Form W-4, you probably just started a new job. Or maybe you recently got married or had a baby. The W-4, also called the Employee’s Withholding Certificate, tells your employer how much federal income tax to withhold from your paycheck. The form was redesigned for 2020, which is why it looks different if you’ve filled one out before then. The biggest change is that it no longer talks about “allowances,” which many people found confusing. Instead, if you want an additional amount withheld (perhaps your spouse earns considerably more than you), you simply state the amount per pay period. Here, we answer frequently asked questions about the W-4, including how to fill it out, what’s changed and how the W-4 is different from the W-2.

Why Do I Need to Fill Out Form W-4?

As just noted, the form tells your employer how much federal income tax to withhold from your paycheck. You’ll need to complete a new W-4 every time you start a new job. If your new company forgets to give you one for some reason, be sure to ask. If your employer doesn’t have a W-4 form from you, the IRS requires it to treat you as a single tax filer, which means withholding the highest possible amount from your paycheck for taxes. You can get back the amount you overpay, but only in the new year when you file your tax return.

Do I Need to Submit the New Form W-4? 

You should complete the redesigned W-4 only if you started a new job – or if your filing status or financial situation has changed. You do not need to fill out the new form if you have not changed employers. Your company can still use the information provided on the old W-4 form.

How Long Does It Take for W-4 Changes to Be Implemented? 

When you submit a W-4, you can expect the information to go into effect fairly quickly. But how long exactly before your paycheck reflects the changes largely depends on your payroll system. Ask your employer when you turn in the form.

How Is the New W-4 Different from the Old W-4?

The biggest change is the removal of the allowances section. You no longer need to calculate how many allowances to claim to increase or decrease your withholding. The new form instead asks you to indicate whether you have more than one job or if your spouse works; how many dependents you have, and if you have other income (not from jobs), deductions or extra withholding. The new form also provides more privacy in the sense that if you do not want your employer to know you have more than one job, you do not turn in the multiple job worksheet.

How to Fill Out the W-4?

As far as IRS forms go, the new W-4 form is pretty straightforward. It has only five steps. If you are single, have one job, have no children, have no other income and plan on claiming the standard deduction on your tax return, you only need to fill out Step 1 (your name, address, Social Security number and filing status) and Step 5 (your signature).

If you have more than one job or your spouse works, you’ll need to fill out Step 2. If you have children, Step 3 applies to you. And if you have other income (not from jobs), you’ll be itemizing your deductions on your tax return or you want an extra amount withheld (including from other jobs), you can indicate your adjustments in Step 4.

How to Fill Out Step 2: Multiple Jobs or Spouse Works?

If your spouse works and you file jointly or if you have a second or third job, you can use either the IRS app or the two-earners/multiple jobs worksheet (page three of the W-4 instructions) to calculate how much extra should be withheld (you put this amount in Step 4). If there are only two jobs (i.e., you and your spouse each have a job, or you have two), you just check the box. (Your spouse should do the same on his or her form or you check the box on the W-4 for the other job, too.)

How to Fill Out Step 3: Claim Dependents?

You fill this out if you earn $200,000 or less (or $400,000 or less for joint filers) and have dependents. It’s a simple calculation where you multiply the number of children under age 17 by $2,000 and the number of other dependents by $500 – and add the two sums.

How to Fill Out Step 4a: Other Income (Not from Jobs)?

If you have interest, dividends or capital gains that you’ll owe taxes on, you can indicate here the total amount of non-pay income here. Your employer will figure it into how much taxes to withhold from your paycheck.

How to Fill Out Step 4b: Deductions?

The deductions worksheet requires some math. You’ll also need to know how much you claimed in deductions on your last tax return. If you claimed the standard deduction, you don’t need to fill this out. If you claimed more than the standard amount, this worksheet will help you calculate how much more. Once you have this amount, you add any student loan interest, deductible IRA contributions and certain other adjustments. You then put this total on the form.

If you get stuck, use the IRS’s withholding app.

How to Fill Out Step 4c: Extra Withholding?

If you will owe more in taxes than what your salary alone would indicate, you can say here how much more you want withheld per pay period. If the extra amount is because your spouse works or because you have more than one job, you enter the amount you calculated in Step 2 – plus any other amount you want withheld.

How Does the W-4 Form Differ From the W-2?

Yes, both of these forms start with the letter ‘w,’ but that’s where the similarities end.

Unlike a W-4, a W-2 form is what your employer fills out for all employees and files with the IRS. It shows your annual earnings from wages and tips. It also states the amounts withheld for the year for Social Security, Medicare, state, local and federal income taxes.

The Bottom Line

If you aren’t switching jobs or going through life changes, you don’t need to refile your W-4 just because the form has changed. However, all new employees need to fill out a W-4 to avoid overpaying taxes. While the form is more straightforward and doesn’t include allowances like it did in the past, it’s still important to properly and accurately list information on your W-4.
