Is it a problem that I can't prove I was told the wrong info on how to file income?
You talk to one of maybe hundreds of representatives at the unemployment call center, and they don't record calls and rarely even document conversations. The sad part is, I asked a second time and was told the same thing! It never occurred to me to document this because I was new to unemployment concepts and I trusted them.
I am sure I will have to pay back thousands based on the "divide by four" concept. If only they had those rules in writing for us.
So, once again, do you think it will be a problem that I can't prove a conversation I had? I have a squeaky clean record in life, hope that helps.
