Federal Form 1099-G, Certain Government Payments, is filed with the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) by New York State for each recipient of a New York State income tax refund of $10 or more. If you received a refund in a particular year, you may need federal Form 1099-G information when filing your subsequent year’s federal tax return. This information is available to you on New York State Form 1099-G, Statement for Recipients of State Income Tax Refunds, which you can view and print directly from our website (select GET FORM 1099-G below). We do not mail Form 1099-G information.

Your New York State Form 1099-G statement amount

Your New York State Form 1099-G statement reflects the amount of state and local taxes you overpaid through withholding or estimated tax payments. For most people, the amount shown on their 2020 New York State Form 1099-G statement is the same as the 2019 New York State income tax refund they actually received.

If you do not have a New York State Form 1099-G statement, even though you received a refund, or your New York State Form 1099-G statement amount is different from your refund amount, see More information about 1099-G.

Get Started

Before you begin, you will need your New York State income tax return (Form IT-201, IT-201-X, IT-203, or IT-203-X) filed for one of the past five years. You must enter the total payments amount from the return you use for verification.

If you had an overpayment, credit, or offset of New York State income tax or the metropolitan commuter transportation mobility tax, you may need to report it on your federal income tax return in the following year. To find out if you need to report this information as income on a 2020 federal income tax return, see the instructions for that return, or contact the IRS or a tax preparer.

Note: A New York State Form 1099-G statement issued by the Tax Department does not include unemployment compensation. If you received unemployment compensation in 2020, including any income taxes withheld, visit the New York State Department of Labor website, log in to your NY.Gov ID account, and select Unemployment Services and View/Print 1099-G.
