On the 1040NR of my 2017 return for Schedule A, I only have box 1 filled out. There are no other items filled out there. I had an account do my previous years due to living in canada and getting paid on the us payroll (w2)ro_otbear wrote: ↑Feb 12th, 2019 4:16 pmOn your 2017 US tax return, did you claim itemized deductions or standard deductions? If you claimed standard deductions, the state tax refund is not considered income for US federal tax purposes in 2018. However, if you itemized deductions, it does get quite complicated. The short answer is "maybe" if you claimed itemized in 2017. You will need to file out this assessment on the IRS website to see if the state income tax is considered taxable income in 2018.
You can refer to the IRS website here: https://taxmap.irs.gov/taxmap/instr/i10 ... nk10002814
On my 540NR it does not have mention of itemized deductions.
