Starting a new job, have question regarding deductions?

I just been given a job offer, after nearly 2 years of not working. I will be making 18/hr. Due to this being mid November of a year what deductions can I make to give my money the most. Like claim 17 dependents for remainder of year and then lessen it to the correct amount in Jan. I know I can claim exempt status. Any other suggestions? Please only those that are FAMILIAR with Human Resources/Salary please answer. Thank you!

As long as you have no other source of taxable income, like unemployment or a spouse's earnings, go ahead and start with this plan since you expect to have no taxable income for 2007. Otherwise, don't do it... More

since ur not allowed to claim so many dependents unless u actually have them i would say claim as many as you can OR file exempt then change it in Jan. thats about the only legal things you can do

If you claim exempt status, then it doesn't matter if you claim allowances or not - exempt says they don't take out anything for income taxes. Be sure you change it for the beginning of the year. Congrats on landing a job, and one paying decently - good luck, I hope it works out well for you.
