Simply write in a higher number. Since it is just you, you should not put more than 1. It won't increase your check very much.

ONLY Allowances for the purpose of the federal income tax withholding amounts for each pay period during the tax year. Single and 1 might be close for you at this time in your life. You really do have to be very careful with this matter of the W-4 form and the Allowances for that purpose. Hope that you find the above enclosed information useful. 12/23/2013

You should claim only 1 or 2. If you claim 3, you'll probably owe. (I claim 3 and don't owe, but that's because I put a lot of money into my HSA and IRA.)

you can claim up to 10 without sending up a flag to the IRS. only your employer sees your W-4 form, the IRS doesn't. you need to claim the right amount for you when you file your taxes. you can change your W-4 form anytime you want if you see things need adjusted.

The W-4 form uses "allowances" not exemptions. If you are a single adult who is not a dependent, you can usually use single/2 allowances and break even.
