    Overtaxed on Severance Pay

    Has anyone experienced this? I was given a severance pay of $24,852. I receive a payment of $15,402 today, clearly way more than the 22% they are supposed to tax. What is the timeline to getting it fixed or just getting my taxes refunded after submitting the st.clair memo
