I have always listened to what you say on these tax matters, but I have to respectfully disagree. I have been married with 2 children the whole time I have been working and according to the first page of the W-4 (not the second), the person you responded to should claim 3 exemptions according to the W-4 itself.

You (also) are (still) confused.

The original poster was asking about the number of exemptions to claim on Form 1040.

The instructions you copied/pasted are from W-4.

As Phil said, one often has nothing to do with the other.
