When you transfer last year's return over, we'll also transfer any refunds you applied from your 2020 return. You'll see this credit in your refund meter when you start your 2021 return.
If you didn't transfer your 2020 return over, you can manually enter the amount by doing this:
- Open (continue) your return, if you don't already have it open.
- Search for refund applied to this year and select the Jump to link in the search results.
- Scroll down to the 2020 Refund Applied to 2021 section.
- Select Start next to the appropriate category (federal, state, or local) and follow the instructions.
