The Arizona Department of Revenue wants to advise taxpayers impacted by the recent 1099-G matter that corrected forms were mailed out on Monday, February 6th.
Any taxpayer who received an incorrect 1099-G from the Arizona Department of Revenue in January should destroy the form. The correct form has the word CORRECTED located in the upper right side of the form in red.
This matter does not impact anyone who did not itemize deductions on the federal return and did not receive an Arizona state income tax refund in 2016 for tax year 2015 or earlier.
The 1099-G serves as a confirmation of the previous year’s state tax refund. However, Arizonans can still file their federal and state tax returns if they have access to their previous year’s return, which contains the same refund information as the 1099-G.
