What is a MO-A TP Kansas City/St. Louis Refund?

What is a MO-A TP Kansas City/St. Louis Refund?

It is a Form used when part of the previous year's state refund is in your federal income. 

 

So if you entered a 1099-G in your federal 1040 for a state refund you received last year, this forms subtracts it out for the state return.

I got this as well, when attempting to file my 2019 MO-A Form with TurboTax Online.

 

The State Income Tax Refund Smart Worksheet screen showed zeros for "Total State and Local Refunds from 2018" and "Remaining State and Local Refunds from 2018", so I entered a zero in "Minus any Refund from 2018 Kansas City and/or St. Louis".

 

I think TurboTax Online just doesn't handle local taxes as elegantly as it could, and the programmers missed this.

I am struggling trying to get Missouri Taxes to pass with no errors and it doesn't let me.  What are they looking for and where do I find the information they are exactly looking for

What is the error you are getting that is stopping you from filing? Also at what point in the return are you at when the error occurs? @Samsungs1

What is a MO-A TP Kansas City/St. Louis Refund?

I am getting this error as well. This shows up at the end of the Missouri state review when TurboTax runs Smart Check.

 

My situation is this:

  • I'm a non-resident of Missouri but work in Kansas City, MO
  • Last year I did not have a MO refund
  • I filed RD-109NR for KC local tax refund for working virtually

The smart check doesn't like that I have 0 for last year's Total State and Local Refund for 2020, but I have a positive value for Refund from 2020 KC/St. Louis. The message says "TP-Kansas/St Louis Refund should not exceed the prior year state and local tax refund reported as taxable on your Federal return." The value I have entered for my refund from KC is less than the local taxes to MO on my W2. So I am really confused on why this is an error. You can continue forward without smart check to proceed, so this is not stopping me, but obviously as a non-tax expert, it would feel better if this was not flagged as an issue.

This is what I read: you had a local refund because you worked virtually in KC.  Let's pretend $5 for example. You had no state refund, $0. Your state and local refund ($5 + $0= $5) is less than your local refund, $5. Somehow you have a zero for your state and local refund. That does not make sense. Go back through your entries and correct your state and local refund so the error is gone.

What is a MO-A TP Kansas City/St. Louis Refund?

running into the same issue.   No state of MO refund but a refund from KCMO.   KCMO issued a 1099-G which I input into the federal returns which carried over to the MO returns.   I'm not sure how to correct the numbers because the refund I received from KCMO is always going to be larger than the refund I received from MO.   Unless i'm not understanding this correctly.

I have inputted a KC w2 and 1099-G from KCMO and am not able to reproduce your error. You can send us a “diagnostic” file that has your “numbers” but not your personal information.  If you would like to do this, here are the instructions: 

 

If you are online, go to tax tools>tools > share file with agent > 6 digit number pops up.

If on desktop, go to online >send tax file to agent > number pops.

 

Reply with the 6 digit # here and @AmyC please

Okay! It all makes sense. The program pulls the state and local refund from federal sch 1 since that is where any taxable refund goes. You have no taxable state and local refund on federal so the MO box is blank.

Your MO return has form MO-A which subtracts out taxable MO refunds. It can't subtract out taxable refunds because there are not any.

When the review shows the local tax, change the box to zero since none of it should be subtracted from your MO income.

The review goes through and your audit risk shows.

You can file!
