Wife Got Job

What is the name of your state? Colorado

I work full-time and my W-4 says married with 3 dependents (wife and 2 kids). My wife has just started a full-time job. What should she put on her W-4?

There is a W-4 calculator at www.irs.gov.

You can also look on the reverse side of the paper version of the W-4, but the electronic one is easier.

You will need your most recent pay stub with you when you do this, as well as last year's tax return if you don't know how much you made/paid in taxes last year.
