This is the first year I have ever owed taxes instead of getting a refund. I don't remember details about how I filled out my W-4, unfortunately... But, basically, the government didn't take out as much money from my checks as it should have. In the past they always took out too much. The only difference is in the past, I was always going from job to job and had several W-2's to account for around tax time. This year, I've worked at just one job full time for the entire tax year.

So the question is, what could I have filled out on my W-4 when I started this job that would cause that? Claimed an exemption? Not claimed one that most people claim? This confuses me every time it comes up.
