Most states and many localities send Form 1099-G to all taxpayers who received a 2012 state or locality refund. Look for this form, which will contain last year's state or local tax refund.
However, some states are going paperless and no longer send Form 1099-G, while others won't send one if you didn’t itemize deductions on your 2012 federal return.
Here are other places you might find last year's state or local tax refund:
- Your 2012 return;
- A notice from your state or locality (if they sent one);
- Your bank statement showing a direct deposit from the state or locality, assuming you received the entire refund in one deposit;
- Your state tax agency (for state tax refunds);
- Your locality (for local tax refunds).
- State and Local Income Tax Refunds, Credits and Offsets Reported on Form 1099-G
- Form 1099-G, Certain Government Payments
