Oh how that begs to be made fun of...Yes, yes it does. Although in this case I actually do think NJ gets it better than federal, although the form is more confusing.On federal, if you were to make enough money combined to push you into the marriage-penalty realm, having two people do "married withhold as single" would still come up short. To makeup for it you'd have to manually pick a # of dollars extra to withhold.On the NJ form, at least they have a fairly easy table to use that helps you pick A through E, for people who wouldn't really know to add extra or how to calculate it.But I *am* right, right? There should be no reason they couldn't make the change. They implied that she wasn't *allowed* to make the change until actually married, but our filing status for this year *will* be MFJ, so we are allowed (legally, etc) to make the change now, right? (My HR had no issue with it)Nonethless, my fiance is a bit of a conflict avoider, so we went the non-conflict route and I gave her a copy that said 'single' with zero allowances and a bit of extra withholding. Same diff.
