So the FICA refund should NOT have been collected.   Do I then show it as a income received for that year on the 1040 form? Legalize does NOT answer the question.

A Form 1099-G is only received from the state or federal government to report certain types of income to you.  Box 1 is for Unemployment Compensation.  Box 2 is for a state or local tax refund.  Box 5 is for RTAA payments.  Box 6 is for Taxable Grants.  Box 7 is for Agricultural Payments.

 

None of those types of payments have anything to do with FICA. 

Which box on the Form 1099-G you received has an amount entered?

Refunded FICA taxes that were withheld in error is NOT income and is not reported on an INCOME tax return.

Make sure that your W-2 reflects in boxes 4 and 6 the net amount of FICA withheld (original amount withheld minus the amount refunded that was originally withheld in error).  If your W-2 is not correct, obtain a correction from your employer.
