    1099-G Question
    I received a 1099-G (Georgia) for tax year 2005, what is this and do I put it on my current one or how do I deal with the past? If I put it on the current where do I put it?

    Also I have a 17 y/o daughter and trying to add hers to my return so she doesn't have to file a separate one and on turbo tax it is confusing, do you just add her W2 at the beginning with ours?

    You DO put it your current 2006 federal tax return, on Line 10 for Form 1040.

    You see, if you itemized in 2005, your withheld state income taxes was an itemized deduction. If you got a state tax refund, that refund is considered taxable income for 2006.

    As for your daughter's income, you cannot add it to yours. You can only add your and your spouse's income together in a joint return.

    Your daughter will have her own return. She can choose NOT to claim her own exemption so you can claim her on your return. It probably will NOT affect her tax refund at all.
