I just accepted a per diem job with a local hospital on top of my full time job (full time job 36 hours a week, per diem job will be about 4 shifts a month). Everythings great and dandy until i get to the dreaded W-4 on my per diem job employment documenation. Please help!!!
for line A ill write 1 because i am single with no dependents....but then i get to Line B
it says write 1 if you are single with 1 job....do i write 1? is per diem considered another job? do i write 2? (if i write two-do i need to fix the w-4 at my current employer)
and then i get to the bottom and it says
complete all the work sheets that apply
- If you plan to itemize or claim adjustments to income and want to reduce your withholding, see the Deductions and Adjustments Worksheet.
- If you are single and have more than one job or are married and you and your spouse both work and the combined earnings from all jobs exceed$50,000 ($20,000 if married) see the Two-Earners/Multiple-Jobs Worksheet to avoid having too little tax withheld.
- If neither of the above situations applies, stop here and enter the number from line H on line 5 of Form W-4 below.
ok so...id be single with more than one job..if for line B i write two....and my combined earnings will be >50,000 since my current job i make more than that already. so do i fill out this form? (and again...do i now need to go to my full time employer and fill out this form too?) but then the form asks how much my lowest paying job is....techncally i get paid less an hour at my full time job....or do i just estimate how much id get paid a year if i work 4 shifts a month at the per diem job?
Oh someone please help. these dreaded w-4s confuse me so much and i dont want to do this wrong!!

Not to brush you off, but ask your payroll person. They usually know that stuff inside & out.
I work for a large health system that has gotten rid of that. It's outsourced and there is no onsite anymore. It's a website, you have to email or call. I called earlier in the year last year and emailed. Guess when I got a response re; the issue, november and that is when they corrected it. They used to have HR when I started but now it's there, just outsourced.
