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.

One question to help clarify things a bit. Did you send back the NET amount of the paycheck, or was it the GROSS amount?

If its the net, you haven't overpaid any taxes. You just have an incorrect W-2 reporting more taxes than you actually paid.

If you paid back the gross pay, then you have actually paid back too much and your employer now owes you a bit of money. And you still have an incorrect W-2.

Do you mean a corrected W-2 from my employer? They said they couldn't give me one.

Did they say why they can't do that? They are the ONLY people who can issue a corrected W-2. I'd raise the question up the payroll heirarchy until you can get an answer.

Good luck.

--Peter
