Hey All-

This year I will be refunded $6800 from the IRS. I hate giving my money to the IRS. I need help devising a tax strategy to keep my money in my hands and end up even owing the IRS money at the end of the year. I adjusted my withholding allowances to 9 on my W-4 towards the end of last year and have since changed them to 6 since I am now enrolled in my company's 401(k) plan. Do any of you Fools know how or where I can calculate how many witholding allowances I can/should take? The 6 is just a SWAG. Additionally, how and where can I make investments so I won't end up getting such a huge refund?

Thanks in advance,
