    I agree with the previous answer. However, it should be added that generally, the initial charge is treated as a misdemeanor. The summons is just that, a summons to appear in court and find out the charges against you. As per the previous, answer this summons should be taken seriously and the likely disposition should be a violation which is not a crime.

    The IRS website has a online withholding tax calculator. You answer a serious of short questions and at the conclusion it will suggest the number of exemptions to claim. The great Milton Friedman of the University of Chicago was responsible for mandatory Federal income tax withholding.
