    I switched jobs early last year and when I did, my wife and I had a discussion on what I should claim on my W4. I wanted to claim 1. She insisted that I should claim zero. My reasoning was that I thought I'd always claimed 1 and we hadn't had to pay additional money for several years. She remembered it differently. So I claimed 1.

    Well, I did my taxes last night and had to write a big fat (for me) check to Uncle Sam. About 3 grand. I was clearly in the wrong. Bottom line, I need some way to make this her fault. Any suggestions?

    If @Danas Boyfrien hadn't put me on ignore, he'd probably be calling me a faggot.
