To estimate the number of exemptions, first estimate the number of personal exemptions, then estimate the number of exemptions for dependents, then add those two numbers together.

Personal exemptions - A taxpayer can generally claim one exemption for themself, unless another taxpayer could claim them as a dependent. For example, a student who is dependent on their parents would not be able to claim an exemption for themself.

Exemptions for dependents - A taxpayer can generally claim an exemption for each qualifying dependent child, and for each qualifying dependent relative. There are various criteria such as age and percent of support that determine if a child or relative can be considered dependent.
