Need help please
My name is Rick, I am/was divorced on the 26th of October of 2017, I changed my status at work from married claiming zero, to single claiming zero. Now I am told that I owe the IRS (Federal tax) some where around 1900 dollars because I divorced late in the year!? When I was married I paid Fed taxes as married and when I divorced I paid Fed taxes as single. I know almost nothing when it comes to taxes, does this sound right to anyone who does taxes for a living and knows far more about the subject than I do?
In a nut shell I divorced late in the year so the whole year got switched to single status taxes, that I have paid married status taxes. (Which is a lesser amount and now I have to make up the difference. If I understand this as it was told to me.
If anyone can give a simple yes that is correct or a no that is not correct, I would appreciate it greatly.
