  Individual Income Tax
I received a 1099-G reporting my state refund, but it doesn't agree with what I actually received. Why?

The 1099-G you received in 2014 shows the amount of your 2012 refund and any prior year refunds issued to you in 2013.

Review all refunds issued to you and the tax returns filed during the year in question; add to the refund amount, any of the following which are included on the 1099-G:

  • Amounts credited forward to 2013 estimated tax
  • Prior year refunds issued in 2013
  • Refund amounts intercepted by Treasury to apply to back tax Assessments, State Agency Collections (e.g. Driver Responsibility Fee) or other 3rd Party Garnishments.
  • Any portion of a refund designated on your return to pay Use tax.
  • Contributions designated for Voluntary Contribution Schedule
    1. Amanda’s Fund for Breast Cancer Prevention and Treatment
    2. Animal Welfare Fund
    3. Children of Veterans Tuition Grant Program
    4. Children’s Hospital of Michigan Fund
    5. Children’s Miracle Network Fund
    6. Children’s Trust Fund – Prevent Child Abuse Michigan
    7. Foster Care Trust Fund
    8. Girl Scouts of Michigan Fund
    9. Michigan Council for the Arts Fund
    10. Military Family Relief Fund
    11. Michigan Housing and Community Development Fund
    12. Michigan Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Monument Fund
    13. Prostate Cancer Research Fund
    14. Renewable Fuels Fund
    15. Special Olympics Michigan
    16. United Way Fund

Subtract refundable credits which are not included on the 1099-G:

  • Homestead Property Tax Credit
  • Farmland Preservation Credit
  • Qualified Adoption Expenses credit
  • Stillbirth Credit
  • Earned Income Tax Credit
  • Energy Efficient Qualified Home Improvement Credit
  • Historic Preservation Tax Credit

This figure should match the amount on your 1099-G.
