State of California Tax Franchise garnished my wages for a 2005 tax owed. The total was $402.24. My employer started the garnishment. However during a new payroll program it somehow reset the garnishment after I fulfilled the total amount of $402.24. $147.86 has been overpaid & sent already to the state. My employer says I have to collect back from the State. I think I get it from my employer. How do I get the money back?

Generally, your employer has no choice but to comply with the state garnishment order, right or wrong. It is up to you to file a claim of overpayment with the state FTB. You should be able to find help and forms on the FTB website.
