I've paid my taxes as single all year, but now I'm married! With this new filing status, my tax liability has decreased, as my wife has both a lower income and a daughter. By my calculations, our tax liability for the year has been paid already.
Can I falsely claim excessive allowances on my W4 so that I do not pay taxes for the rest of the year, or should I just accrue a large refund? We're a bit skittish about "lying" on the W4 and the possibility of owing a large amount at the end of the year if we have miscalculated. Surely I'm not the first person to run into this!
I live in Texas, so I am only worrying about Federal Income Tax.
