If you have multiple sources of income in your household or a second job, or more in itemized deductions than your standard deduction, be sure to work out the pertinent worksheet(s) on Page 2.

I've always found the worksheets to be worthless. Or maybe it's just the front worksheet. Do you feel the multiple income sheets are adequate? I got married last year and we kept both of our withholdings at the single rate to be safe. Why is it that married withholding rates are lower when most couples end up actually paying more? I got socked with capital gains tax this year so I think I'll keep my withholdings the same just in case.

Thanks,
Mike
