How do I get credit for a 2021 refund applied to 2022's taxes?

SOLVEDby TurboTax453Updated January 13, 2023

When you transfer last year's return over, we'll also transfer any refunds you applied from your 2021 return. You'll see this credit in your refund meter when you start your 2022 return.

If you didn't transfer your 2021 return over, you can manually enter the amount by doing this:

  1. Open (continue) your return, if you don't already have it open
  2. Search for refund applied to this year and select the Jump to link in the search results
  3. Scroll down to the 2021 Refund Applied to 2022 section
  4. Select Start next to the appropriate category (federal, state, or local) and follow the instructions
