OK, early last year I bought my first home. I just finished doing my taxes for this year and I've been VERY nice to Uncle Sam this past year. I've loaned him quite a bit of money and just now is he getting around to paying me back. Well, this year I'd rather have my money up-front and working for me. I've just got a copy of a W4 and now I need to determine how many dependants I need so that Uncle S. won't keep more then he should. I've spent several hours trying to find this information somewhere on the web, but this seems to be the one thing that hasn't been posited somewhere yet.

If someone knows where I can go to calculate this or has the equations (I only need federal), please let me know.
