Sorry for the terse title, here is a more fleshed out explanation:
When I filed my 2011 taxes last year, I received a refund from my state of residence (Arkansas). Later last year I had to amend my 2011 tax filing due to a business which changed ownership (not my business, but I owned stock). This amendment required me to pay back a large portion of the return which I received.
Now I'm filing my 2012 taxes, and since I have itemized my deductions, I am expected to declare the refund from last year as income. To facilitate this, the state of Arkansas has furnished me with a 1099-G, which shows my initial refund amount. It seems weird to me that I have to declare the full amount, even though later I had to repay a chunk of it. Is there any way for me to get "credit" for the part which I paid back?
I have called the Arkansas Dept. of Fin. and Adm., but they say that there is no way that they can adjust my 1099-G, even though I paid some of it back.
