ok so here's the deal. I'm 22 and a new grad RN . I live at home with my parents and plan to for the next two years to save up and move out, but until then i am wondering what taxes will be like at the end of the year and what i should claim. I was planning on claiming 0. Some friends of mine said that when they started working they owed like 4,000 at the end of the year. Does this sound right or were they may claiming the wrong thing, for example not getting much $ taken out of each check which may have led them to owe big? I just need some advice because i was recently hired and need ot fill out paperwork next week....can anyone help me out?
