I submitted a request to receive a refund for taxes taken out of my severance pay back in October. I received my severance pay back in June/July time frame. Given that I will likely receive my refund in the new year and have already received my 1099-R reflecting my severance payment and taxes withheld, what do I do when filing for taxes if I receive my tax refund in the new year? Has anyone had experience with this? I'm really frustrated at the time DFAS takes to rectify the tax refund requests. I think it is a disservice to those who have spent the time to do things right on their end. My letter I received actually stated that my severance pay should not have been taxed and DFAS completely ignores it. Any advice/assistance would greatly appreciated.
