I Have a problem with a previous employer now that tax season has come around. Need help in figuring out the right step to do.
I worked for a family run business for 8 months. During this time I was not allowed lunches or breaks as they didn't have anyone to cover for me if I left. I worked 10 hours a day 5 days a week. I did not receive any overtime pay the entire length of employment. How he thought to handle this was taking me off the clock after 8 hours and paying me the remaining two hours under the table with no overtime. Now that its tax season he has sent me an independent tax form and now I owe the government quite a bit of money. What should I do? I live in california
