I made around 46,000 last year between two jobs and filing single. I claim 0 at both. Why would I owe money?

I am clueless with taxes. In the past I always received a refund now it says I owe around $600.

    Each job takes out like they are your only job, but when you file you add the jobs together so your tax rate is higher. If you expect this situation to continue this year, have an extra $12 a week taken out at one of your jobs.

    Two jobs will sometimes cause this. Your tax bracket for two jobs can be higher than one job.
