Well, if your employer, be they parents or not, incorrcectly reported your income, ie. inaccurately, they need to correct it. They are legally obligated to do so and you have avenues with your State if they do not. Like with any employer, if they report incorrectly, be it over or under what truly was the income, both scenarios can hurt us unfairly. So your main avenue, as I see it, is getting them to correct their reporting, which they can do.
