Do they add 2018 refund to income for the standard deduction

No, your 2018 tax refund is for tax year 2018 and is not entered on your 2019 return. The 2018 refund has no effect on your income or standard deduction for 2019.

@JWhite3542 ,  if you are talking about federal refund ONLY, the answer above is always true.  For state refund  , it is true  most of the time  but in some special situations,  it may not be.
