    Question Understanding Form 1099-G

    Quick question, I received a 1099-G for 2007 back in June/July of 2008. We figured we'd take care of whatever we needed to when we filed taxes this year. Well today in the mail I received another 1099-G, but this ones for 2008. 2007's has refund requested, then earned income credit, then in box 1 state income tax refund. 2008's has same info.

    My question is, the amt in box 1, is that a refund to me? Or is that something I need to pay?

    If we are talking about a for 1099G issued in the United States, that makes no sense. 1099Gs in the US are what is commonly used to report unemployment benefits.

    The 1099G for 2007 should have been handled on your 2007 tax return. A 1099G for 2008 should have been handled on your 2008 tax return, and it makes no sense that you are just receiving it now.

    I suggest that you take both of those documents and go get a consult with a local tax professional.

    It sounds like these might be for state income tax refunds, but you've not given us enough information to have any way of helping you.
