2015 - clicked that I received standard deductions, see that not that I itemized

Does it matter that I hit the wrong thing about my 2015 taxes?  Could that affect my 2016 taxes, or was that just info that turbo tax wants?

The impact it could have for your 2016 tax year return would be the tax-ability of any State refunds you may have received.

If you received a refund from the State in 2016 (from the tax year 2015) and you took the "standard deduction" it is not taxable.

If you received a refund and you itemized:

          If you took the option of "income taxes" (schedule A line 5a) the refund is taxable

          If you took the option of "general sales taxes" (schedule A line 5b) the refund is not taxable
