Where can I find last year's state or local tax refund amount?
Your state and local income tax refund may be taxable. To determine if the refund is taxable, see State and Local Tax Refunds.
If you should have and didn’t receive Form 1099-G with your refund information, you can find the refund amount on:
- Your 2011 state or locality tax return
- A change notice from the state or locality if you received such a notice after filing
- Your bank statement showing a direct deposit from the state or locality if you received all of your refund
Some states won’t send you a Form 1099-G if they can determine that you didn’t itemize deductions on your federal return. Other states send a Form 1099-G to all their taxpayers.
Most state websites have a telephone number you can call to get the 1099-G amount. See How to Contact Your State Agency to find your state’s telephone number. You can also access your Form 1099-G information from the following states online:
