#Good news! The IRS has extended the tax deadline to April 18th! As long as you submit your federal return by midnight on 4/18/2018, you won't be considered a late filer for your federal return. Direct debit tax payments that are submitted with your federal return (or on the IRS website) by 4/18 are also considered timely filed ×

Do I need to report last year’s state tax refund as income? Form-1099G

This page has been updated for 2018 taxes and may not apply to previous years.

 

If you took a standard deduction last year or itemized sales tax instead of state income tax, your state income tax refund isn’t taxable.

Go to this section in Credit Karma Tax: Income - Form 1099-G

Your state tax refund from last year is taxable if you itemized your state income taxes. Because you received a refund, your state taxes ended up being less than you had claimed as a deduction on your federal return. As a result, all or part of your state refund can become taxable income in the next year.
