1099-G "Tell us about your refund", for the box "Total of all your payments and withholding". What is this, and where on my state tax return to find this info?

If you are referring to the screen related to refunds received for state/local tax returns (see attached screenshots depending on TurboTax product platform), Total of all your payments and withholding is the total amount you paid to the state or locality you selected on the screen for the year you selected under Tax Year of Refund (usually 2016). Thus, if you received the refund and related Form 1099-G in 2017 but the amount was for "Tax Year of Refund" 2016, then you would enter "Total of all your payments and withholding" for tax year 2016.

The amount would not include federal, social security, and medicare taxes withholdings. You should be able to find this information on your state or local tax return(s) for the "Tax Year of Refund". Many states or localities even have a similarly labeled line that is a total, such as "Total payments" or "Total payments and credits." Depending on the state or locality, "Total of all your payments and withholding" may include the following:

  • Amounts withheld on your W-2, W-2G, and 1099
  • Estimated tax payments for 2016. Add any paid in 2017 for 2016 (it's common for the 4th quarterly payment to be made in January)
  • Overpayment from 2015 applied toward your 2016 return
  • Payment made with an extension of time to file
  • Payment made when you filed your return
  • Refundable credits
