Question
Do I have to claim my state or local refund from last year?

Answer

Line 10: Taxable Refunds, Credits, or Offsets of State and Local Income Taxes

None of your refund is taxable if, in the year you paid the tax, you either (a) did not itemize deduction, or (b) elected to deduct state and local general sales taxes instead of state and local income taxes.

If you received a refund, credit, or offset of state or local income taxes in the year, you may receive a Form 1099-G. If you chose to apply part or all of the refund to your estimated state or local income tax, the amount applied is treated as received in that year. If the refund was for a tax you paid in the previous year and you deducted state and local income taxes on line 5 of your Schedule A, use the worksheet of Schedule A, Form 1040 Instructions. (OLT will figure this amount for you based on your inputs.)
