Completly frustrated! Twenty Thousand Dollar Overpayment Because My Employer Reported I Earned More
I lost my job 2 years ago and quickly started receiving unemployment benefits. I worked no more than 20 hours per week during this time as a waitress. I claimed my tips weekly and this continued for 2 years. In June I received a letter stating I falsely reported wages and was over paid like 20,000 $$$.
I called my employer and she stated she reported 10% of my sales during this time to the state. Long story short, our reporting was different. I claimed what I made.
Should I be responsible for this huge over payment.
