Pennsylvania will halt mailings of 1099-G statements
Pennsylvania will save $250,000 a year by stopping mailings of Form 1099-G statements to taxpayers who get income tax refunds from the state, officials said.
The cost-saving measure will start with the 2012 tax year. Taxpayers who now are receiving 1099-G notices for 2011 will see a note to this effect, and all the information will be available online, Elizabeth Brassell, spokeswoman for the state Department of Revenue, said Friday.
The 1099-G is a federal form that the IRS requires be given to taxpayers, to remind them of state income tax refunds or credits they received the previous year.
It affects federal income tax returns for those who itemized deductions the previous year, and claimed state income tax paid as a deduction. Information about the change is at www.revenue.state.pa.us .
