The information on your State of Arizona return is populated by the information that you entered into TurboTax for your Federal Return. However, the data that is requested in the Federal portion is in regards to your 2018 refund you received in 2019.

- While in your Tax Home,

To be sure - I'm using downloaded Mac version of TT Home & Business, not online version. So unsure about "tax home" though I did search "state tax refund" but got 23K answers that do not apply. I filled out the tax refund portion in the Fed return citing four different state refunds or credits. And yes, it was 2018 refund paid in 2019. In the past, this was always taxable but Fed return said non taxable because we did not itemize for 2018 tax year. And yes, I thought AZ return would take info from Fed return that would include tax refund. I eventually had a phone call with Victor of TT - my 2nd attempt. Long story short - he said put a zero for refund on the AZ return. TT seemed happy with that. Maybe the AZ return question should have said "are you paying tax on your 2018 AZ refund because you itemized last year?"
