I received a refund from the state of Illinois last year on my income taxes. I have been expecting to receive a 1099-G due to that refund. I have not received the expected form.
After some googling, I found this site: http://tax.illinois.gov/individuals/1099-g.htm
You should have received a 1099-G if you filed the federal U.S. 1040 and itemized your deductions on federal Schedule A last year. If you itemized and did not receive the 1099-G, click here to obtain the 1099-G information.
You will not receive a 1099-G if you did not file the federal U.S. 1040 and itemize your deduction on federal Schedule A last year.
I did file a 1040 last year, and I did itemize.
When I clicked through and logged in to the Illinois tax site, I saw no mention of a 1099-G for 2014 associated with my account.
Are there conditions under which I would not get a 1099-G even if I itemized?
Also, what does itemizing vs. claiming the standard deduction have to do with it? (This is more out of curiosity--I don't understand the connection).
Finally, assuming that this is an error, how would I go about asking the state to (re)issue the form?
