<quote>You need a corrected W-2. There's no need for any money to change hands, assuming that you repaid the net amount that you were erroneously paid.

If you can't get a corrected W-2, file your returns with the correct figures (including the lesser amount of withholding) and attach an explanation.</quote>

Do you mean a corrected W-2 from my employer? They said they couldn't give me one. It might have been because they sat on my check until after January 1st. Maybe that means I'm supposed to report it on my 2004 taxes. This whole thing has been a big headache, as I've now paid a few hundred dollars in income tax, FICA, and state income tax that I didn't need to pay.

I file my taxes on-line through TurboTax, so I don't know how I could attach an explanation.
