Payback sign on bonus?

Postby eron94 » Wed Jan 19, 2011 4:32 am


I received a sign on bonus when I was hired, and my contract states, "should the employee resign or be terminated prior to 12 months, the bonus must be paid back in its entirety".

My question is, I lost almost 1/2 to taxes when I received it, so would I need to pay back the after tax amount, or the full?

Payback sign on bonus?

you pay back to your employer the full amount "in its entirety", and then u file an amended tax return for the earlier yr when u received the bonus, to take away that bonus, and u should get the tax back from the govt.
