I had my California taxes withheld on Form CA 592-B. How should I report this on my federal return?
You can claim an itemized deduction for the state taxes California withheld on Schedule A. However, if you claim the deduction, next year you'll have to include the refund amount in your income. You'll report it as an overpayment.
