The W-4 form uses ALLOWANCES, not exemptions. Follow the worksheet on the form. You can probably claim 4. Note, does the elderly dependent have ANY income at all? Do they pay anything from savings? In order to claim them, their taxable income has to be less than $3900 AND you have to prove you paid more than half of their support as well as more than half the cost of keeping up the home.

3 if you want to be sure not to owe, 4 if you want to come real close one way or the other, but don't mind maybe owing a little.

You can't be a dependent and be HoH. Do you mean you HAVE a dependent?

You could do 3 or 4 allowances on your W-4. Review the requirements for HoH. If the elderly person is not your parent, that person must be closely related to you (e.g. grandparent, aunt, uncle..) and live with you, and you must provide support for the person plus provide over 50% of the cost of maintaining the home in which the person resides. Same requirements for a parent except the parent does not have to live with you.
