How do I determine the impact on my take-home pay from changes to my W4? Right now I claim 0 exemptions, which is obviously generating a refund situation come tax time. I want to tweak my withholdings so that I'm not overpaying so much.

I no longer do any consulting on the side, so I don't need extra withholdings to offset untaxed income. I don't have any large investments to generate income, all I have is my salary.

Try as I might, I couldn't find a chart or table or anything on the IRS website that would let me determine how a given W4 change will affect my pay.

Any pointers?
