It's not an example, it's a worksheet. If the one your employer gave you didn't have it, they must be using a substitute. You can download the "official" form at I believe they also have an online allowance calculator, but I've never seen or used it.

Hey Phil,

BTW, thanks for your help with understanding taxes earlier this year. We're enjoying our new house because of my new found knowledge. Anyway, I have used the calculator. I itemized everything, including state taxes, property taxes, mortgage interest, medical coverage payments, and points. It's gotten me about $500+ per month and MS Money still estimates a $5500+ refund at the end of the year. Next year will be lest though because the points won't count. Once I figured out how many allowances I could take, I went conservative and dropped it by two JIC.
