Overpayments FAQs

If you have an overpayment, it means that the Kansas Department of Labor (KDOL) has determined that you obtained Unemployment Insurance (UI) benefits in excess of the amount that might otherwise have applied. There can be several causes of overpayment but the most common is a determination, at a hearing or an appeal, that you were not qualified to receive UI benefits which had already been provided to you. Overpayments can also be due to fraudulent UI claims.

null Are Overpayment repayments tax deductions?

It depends. You should consult with your tax advisor or tax preparation service. Because UI benefits are generally income, it may be that UI benefit repayments would provide a deduction on income tax returns when repaying prior reported income in the tax year of the repayment.
