Challenge/notify CERB repayment.

Basically I applied for CERB both through EI and CRA. I recieved $2000 from each. After a conversation with the CERB hotline I released I was supposed only apply for one so I sent the one from the CRA back two days after receiving it. Anyhow I noticed n my CRA my account a message saying I have to send back the $2000 which I had already done. I was wondering how I can notify or challenge the CRA request electronically?

Contact them as had something similar but not carb. I made a payment and they applied it to next year instead of the current year. They moved it over right on the phone and then sent an updated statement.

I was under the impression that they'd be doing this atomically in the new year. My money is still sitting in "instalments". Last thing I need is to pay taxes on money I already sent back.

Edit: I checked just now, and it seems they finally transferred it (as of a couple weeks ago, it wasn't transferred).

Instalment Account Transactions
Date Details Amount debited Amount credited Balance
June 08, 2020 Payment dated June 08 2020 2,000.00 -2,000.00
June 08, 2020 Transferred to Canada Emergency Benefit account, credit dated June 08 2020 2,000.00 0.00
Balance 0.00
Why can't we all just get along?

So after a call with the CRA it turns out that it was paid back on April 8 when I sent back the money via a 2020 tax installment verified in my CRA account history. I had Just never looked there. The person said to ignore the message as I am in the safe.
