(I am single with no kids) I recently have been elightened to the idea of getting more along the way that I can invest rather than getting the lump sum at the end of the year. Do I go ahead and claim one exemption for myself? How can I do this to keep from paying at the end of the year? Any advce on how to figure this out would be greatly appreciated.

To which I respond:

The worksheet on the W-4 will lead through a calculation of the number of withholding allowances to claim to make you withholding come 'closer' to your actual tax liability.
