WHAT IS STATE TAX REFUND ITEM Q LINE 2

State Tax Refund item Q Line 2 is your refund received in 2020 for state or local taxes paid. 

 

Your state or local tax refund is not taxable if you did not itemize your deductions in prior years. On the contrary, the refund would be taxable if you got a tax benefit for the deduction in a prior year. 

 

If it is not taxable and you did not itemize this deduction, you can enter $0 or leave blank.

 

If it is taxable and you did get a refund of taxes paid, then enter the amount of the refund.

@James79_russell What is your state? Do you have forms within your state tax return that can only be mailed and not e-filed?
