It's unusual for me to get bull-headed, but I would this time. I'd point out to them that they sat on the check for a while (I assume we're talking about a couple of weeks here) and that the fault is theirs, not yours. I would not send them the balance of the money for the taxes. And if necessary, I'd file your returns using a substitute W-2, claiming the net amount of pay and taxes after the repayment.
You'll probably need to file on paper, and I'd expect any refund to take longer than normal.
--Peter <== knowing that a corrected W-2 (and related payroll tax returns) are not that tough to do


Unfortunately, I already repaid them for the gross amount I was overpaid. I probably shouldn't have, but there were other issues involved as not paying them back was holding up my associate from getting money, but I digress.

I'm going to take your approach, but what is it exactly that they expect me to do? If they refuse to budget off the idea that they can't give me a new W-2 because it was repaid after the end of the year, what am I supposed to do? Am I supposed to file this on my 2004 taxes somehow?
