FAQs - Individual Income Tax

What should I do with my Form 1099-G? Do I need to pay this amount?

Form 1099-G is a report of income you received from your Ohio and/or School District Income taxes as a refund, credit carry forward, donation or offset. It is not a bill. This may be taxable income on the federal return. If you filed your federal return claiming itemized deductions for the tax year listed on the 1099-G, the refund is considered as income for federal tax purposes. You should review the federal return instructions for reporting state income tax overpayments. (See the instructions and worksheet in the federal Form 1040 tax booklet that pertains to line 10 - Taxable Refunds, Credits, or Offsets of State and Local Income Taxes.)
