hi i've started residency and am earning a living. but the fact is i haven't worked in like 6 years and so am not too familar with the w4 tax forms. I want to take home the maximum amount of money each week. so should i claim the maximum amount of dependants i'm elgible for (which is like 5) or the minimum which is 0. also how big of difference is it in take home pay between the two extremes on a typical 40k resident salary. thanks alot for your replies.
