If I accidentally claimed the wrong allowance amount on my W-4. What will happen?
If you accidentally claimed the wrong allowance amount, you won’t owe a penalty. However, you’ll have a reduced or increased tax withholding on your paycheck.
This reduced / increased amount will lower / raise the amount of taxes you paid. It might cause you to owe taxes or have a larger refund when you file.
