It sounds like you received one form twice. The corrected form will replace the previous form. This is in response to where you put the unrecognized amount, as that's not an option. Note that you only need to enter this if you deducted state income tax for the applicable year (2015 tax return). The software will walk you through this. 

If you entered the first one, be sure to delete it and then add your corrected form. Only enter the corrected boxes into the software and you'll be able to tell the software the box is checked too. 

To enter your form 1099-G, follow the steps below:

  1. Login and click Take me to my return
  2. Next, select the Federal Taxes tab and then click the Wages & Income tab below it  (If you have a blue button that says, 'Check for more income,' click it and then click 'Skip to see all income')
  3. Scroll down to the Other common income section and click the blue hyperlink Show more
  4. Click Start/Update next to Refunds from State or Local Returns
  5. Next, you'll be on a summary screen of forms entered and you can choose to Edit or Delete your entry. You can also choose to Add another State/Local tax refund
