Repayment of disability benefit
My uncle had cancer operation in 2008. In 2008, he received W2 from Prudential Insurance (a third party administrator of benefit for his company he worked for) for sick pay of $13k while he was out on medical leave. He is 63 yrs old in 2008. Later in late 2008, he filed and also received social security. During Dec-08, Prudential notified him that he was overpaid and so they took $5k out of his bank account in Jan 7th, 2009 but his W2 was not corrected. Can I report the $5k of repayment of benefit in 2008 tax return on Schedule C as other expense or please help on where else in the 2008 tax return can I report this $5K they took from him ?
Any help is appreciated
