I always tell clients that the government doesn't take away ALL your money when the second income is added. But you do have to work the numbers to make sure the proper taxes are withheld. If you look at Form W-4, after you claim S or M and the number of exemptions, there is a line to authorize the employer to withhold an additional amount.
