The filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission does not detail the expenses inadvertently charged to the company.&nbsp;&nbsp;</p><p>&nbsp;Liveris took home more than $21 million&nbsp;in compensation last year. A spokesman says he wrote a personal check to reimburse the company.&nbsp;&nbsp;</p><p>&nbsp;Liveris has been Dow&rsquo;s CEO since 2004. He&rsquo;s been the chairman of the board since 2006.
