Question
Do I have to claim my federal tax refund on my Iowa return?

Answer

 

If you received a refund of federal income tax during 2019:

You must report the amount on this line. It must be reported even if you used the standard deduction on the prior year's Iowa return. The federal refund must be included on this line because you benefited from being able to deduct federal taxes on the prior year's Iowa return, which reduced your Iowa taxable income for that year. The amount reported on this line should not exceed the total amount of any federal tax deduction taken on the prior year(s) Iowa return.

Include the following:

  • The refund you received from your 2018 federal tax return
  • To find the amount you received, check your records or call the IRS at 1-800-829-1040. This information is not available from the Iowa Department of Revenue.
  • Any federal refunds received in 2019 for other years that were amended or filed late
  • Any portion of the federal refund received in 2019 due to excess FICA payments or the Fuel Tax Credit from federal form 4136 if they were claimed as a federal tax payment on line 17 of a prior year Iowa return.
  • Any portion of the federal refund that represents overpayment of Deemed Repatriation of Deferred Foreign Income.
