It's been forwarded to DMPAP I've been told. It's seems a bit ridiculous that a title change with no change in pay results in -10,000 charge and over 55% of my income this year is gone to federal tax all of a sudden. There's no need to re pay me what I've already received exactly. Now I get to spend the next year under financial hardship while the staff who messed everything up keep collecting their proper pay and couldn't care less, and will continue to do their jobs wrong without repercussionThat is considered a lump sum (for income tax), even if you received nothing.
That's why you will likely need someone in DMPAP to make a correction.
