okay, I googled the subject and I got countless links as to how to fill out my W-4 and how to change it. That's not the information I need! All I want to do is check on how many allowances I claimed so I don't get an unpleasant surprise during tax season. A new company took over and I can't remember how many I claimed on the day I was rehired under the new company. It was chaotic and hurried and there were a dozen of people heeded into a room with the HR people we would never meet again in person. All they said was "we don't have time to research how many you have been claiming, but you can change it later if you need to." Suffice it to say I couldn't remember how many allowances I had been claiming all along working for the original company. If this information is on my check stubs, it's hidden pretty well. So how does a person check how many allowances they are claiming? Please bear in mind this is the green room so good advice and positive feedback is my goal here.
