My employer's payroll department has messed up and has routed more than $8,500 into my deferred compensation account for this year. Before the mistake is rectified I suspect there will be close to $12,000 in contributions for this year.

Has this happened to others? How soon do I have to take care of this before IRS gets involved? What are penalties? Thanks for comments.
