I was recently inadvertently given two different bonus payments by my employer. Both had taxes, etc withheld. Now (as expected) I've received an email from HR "apologizing" and informing me that I need to do one of the following:
Give them a check for the deposited amount of the incorrect bonus (excluding the tax and other withholdings that they will take care of)
Have them deduct the amount owed from my next 1-5 paychecks.
The total of the amount owed back (not including withholdings) is only around $3000. Is either way more advantageous than the other? Should I consider something else that I'm not thinking of?
