Is it necessary that i fill out a w4?

I did a few hours of work for a company. I am not their employee. we agreed that my payment would be $150. After i finished the job they required me to fill out a w4 and a w9. I didn't want them deducting any money. i wrote "exempt" on the w4, but they deducted the following:

Fed_Income - $3.56
Soc_Sec - $6.30
Medicare - $2.18
St_Dis_Ins - $1.50

This made my check total $136.46

Is this right that they did this? I live in California.

Thanks

Oh yeah, being a U.S. citizen, you're going to have to comply with the tax related policies. $136 isnt that bad, considering that i normally have to endure a painful 12% deduction on my income.
