I have some questions regarding how I can figure out if I am withholding enough taxes.Here are the facts I think are relevant:Starting this year my wife is a part time independant contractor, anticipating earning about $10000 in 2010.She continues to collect some Unemployment benefits which should also be close to $10000 for 2010.For 2009 we got a refund of $1700 primarily because of the job loss in July and purchasing a new house in September.We have a new dependant as of 2/19/10.I work a regular employee job.I would like to just adjust my withholding to cover the taxes for both of us. Am I correct that this can cover any SE taxes she might owe?I have been working with the IRS withholding calculator, but some things are not clear.For example when it asks for "total Federal income tax withheld" is that asking just for the "Fed withholding" or do I add up the SS and MEDI amounts as well?Either way I do it says our anticipated income tax is $0. Does that seem right?Thank you for any insight,Mosquito
