Local And State Tax Refund Taxable
You might receive Form 1099-G reporting a state or local income tax refund. If so, that doesn’t mean your refund is automatically taxable.
If you claimed the state or local income taxes you paid as an itemized deduction on last year’s return, usually your state or local refund is taxable. However, other circumstances might reduce your tax. The amount of your refund that’s taxable can be reduced by the difference between these:
- Itemized deductions you claimed last year
- The standard deduction for your filing status
