Are tax refunds from prior year taxable income the following year? We got $21k back last year and I want to make sure we won't be paying tax on it this year.

    Holy shit you got a lot back. I'm not sure about your question but our returns were never used as a taxable income.

    you pay them on state not federal. Did you have a tax credit? I recieved about that much last yr but 13,170 was an adoption tax credit

    ok, So did they pay you intrest on it (ours took a while bc they audited it) They will put in the intrest which i think for us was only 120.00 or so, but nothing bad. The only thing else that will go into it is the state. You will be good!

    No. They sent us a letter it was under review and they had 45 days before interest would be added. They deposited on the 45th day.

    If you itemize your deductions your state refund is taxable.  If you take standard it is not.  Your federal refund is not taxable.
