Will claiming tax credit on IRC 1341 increase an audit?

This answer was rated:

I'm claiming a tax credit based on IRC 1341 this year because I repaid my income of 4600 back to my employer in 2011 for an overpayment made in 2010. Will this increase my risk for being audited?

No, I have prepared maybe half a dozen Section 1341 (Claim of Right) claims. Never heard "Boo!" from the IRS. The most I can imagine would be correspondence asking you to document the repayment.
