Two ammended returns and state tax


F

Taxpayer is filing amended returns for 2006 and 2007. Both original
returns used federal standard deduction and both amended returns will use
itemized deductions. The original 2006 return resulted in a state refund.
The 2006 state refund was not included as income on the original 2007
return since the taxpayer did not itemize in 2006. The amended 2006
return will reduce the 2006 state refund slightly so taxpayer will have to
return part of the state refund. Should the amended 2007 return declare
the original 2006 state refund as income and the 2009 return claim the
payment to the state.

As it should be.

Nope. The refund received in 07 was not due to itemizing deductions in a
prior year.





and the 2009 return claim the payment to the state.

Yes.
