What should my allowance be on W4 to increase my tax withholding?

I'd like my withholding of Federal income to be about 15% of my taxable income. Currently 10% is being deducted. This way I'll have a forced savings at the end of the year. I'm single.

For your exemptions on your w4 put down zero and they will take out more taxes.

You can change it to zero and you can also specify additional withholding amount as well.....ex, you can request that an extra $10 is withheld in addition to whatever would normally be withheld for taxes.
