Hi. My name is ***** ***** I will be happy to help out.
When did you repaid it back to your employer? in 2015 or 2016?
If you repaid it last year than you should request a corrected W2. If the employer will not issue you a corrected W2, you can claim the repayment as a deduction or a credit on Schedule A. You will have to figure it out both ways to see which one will give you better refund or lower balance.
Here are instructions how to do it: https://ttlc.intuit.com/questions/1977229-repayment-of-overpaid-wages
Regarding the loan, you cannot deduct the payments and because it is personal, you cannot deduct the interest either.
You received W2, correct? What it said in your contract?
Employer is required to pay you for your time or work done. If you received advances (or higher pay) as a condition that you must stay with your employer for a certain period of time and your employment is terminated early, your termination fee is basically repayment of those advances.
Any questions? Is there anything else I can help you with today?
