Way not enough information. What you claim on your W-4 doesn't affect what your tax is on your return, just how much is withheld. If you had only one job between you, have three dependent children, and claimed four withholding allowances throughout the year, you shouldn't owe $3,000. This means either

1. Your employer didn't withhold correctly or

2. You've miscalculated your tax.

If you'd like us to check number 2, we need to know the ages of the children as of 12/31/2000.
