Last month we received a letter from the IRS stating that we had been over payed $1200 on last years tax refund and need to pay the IRS back for the money. My husband spoke with them and they said he could just send the form back and requesting the money to be taken out of this years tax refund. . . . We did our taxes and on the website it says we should receive our refund next Friday UNLESS there is an previous amount owed. Does anybody know how much extra time it will take to get our refund??
Edit~ The reason we were overpaid is because my husband withdrew money from his 401k to pay a hospital bill for my son. We didn't receive a 1099R from the company and had 10% taken out for taxes. When we did our taxes we had honestly forgotten all about the withdrawing that money and how it could be considered income. Apparently the company his 401k goes through must have reported it because we got a letter last month saying we did not report the $1200 and the extra amount of "income" caused us to not be eligible for the EIC we received. It was just an oversight on our part. We were confused at first because we thought they had said we didn't pay the taxes on it, we notified the 401k company and requested the missing 1099R.Answer Question
