I received a form 1099-G from the AZ Dept of Revenue and don’t know what it means. Help!?

Asked by: emeka22uche 1220 views YA Discussion

In box 2 for State or local income tax refunds, credits, or offsets it shows the amount of $ 261.00

In box 3 it shows it’s for the tax year 2010

Thanks in advance!

    I think it means you got a state or local income tax refund in 2011 for the 2010 tax year. Does your 2010 Arizona return show you were due a refund?
    If you itemized deductions on your 2010 federal income tax return, part of the AZ refund may be taxable on this year’s Federal return, but if you didn’t itemize last year, the refund is not taxable to you on this years Federal return.
    It has no bearing at all on this year’s AZ return, and it is income to you on this years Federal return ONLY if you filed Schedule A for 2010. If you took the standard deduction last year, you can ignore the 1099-G altogether.

    It means that you received a $ 261 from the State of Arizona last year (2011) for your 2010 Arizona state income tax return.

    If you deducted state income tax withheld in 2010 when you filed your 2010 federal income tax return in 2011, then this $ 261 is taxable income and must be reported on the 2011 federal income tax return that you will file in 2012.

    If you did not deduct state income tax withheld in 2010 when you filed your 2010 federal income tax return in 2011, then this $ 261 is not taxable income and must not be reported on the 2011 federal income tax return that you will file in 2012.
