Without knowing what type of allowance you are receiving I could not advise you what to do.

If it was a qualified housing allowance, your W-2 should be corrected. Housing allowance payments go in box 14 on a W-2. They are not included in box 1 on your W-2; however, there are other allowances that are included in box 1 such as a car allowance or Social Security allowance.
