Prior Year Taxes Paid In 2018


The money you paid to the IRS for a previous year’s federal tax return is not deductible, so you do not enter it anywhere on your 2018 return.  If you paid taxes due in 2018 to your state or local government, you can enter that by going to Federal> Deductions and Credits> Estimates and Other Taxes Paid> Other Income Taxes.  You can enter the taxes you paid, but do not include any penalties or interest.


There are six states that allow you to enter the federal tax you paid on your state return--Alabama, Iowa. Louisiana, Missouri, Montana, and Oregon.  If you are filing in one of these states watch for the deduction when you prepare your state return.

Prior Year Taxes Paid In 2018

Thank you. The question came when I was filling out the 1099-G, there is a window 'Tell us about your refund'. So here there is a box for 'Total of all your payments and withholding'. Would I not add the other states underpayments I had to pay to the state taxes for that year?
