Does a 2015 state tax refund get reported in 2016 when you receive it? I'm not sure as we don't have a state income tax in our state. I think you were trying to enter it in the wrong location. You were using "Other 1099-G Income". Use State and Local 1099-G.

Who sent it?  That might help figure out what it is for.

That should be a state refund.  Does it match the amount of your refund from last year?

You could call them and ask what it was for, but it sounds like it was a refund for your 2015 state taxes.
