1099-G Statements for Refunds/Credit

Each tax season, the City of Fairfield Division of Taxation issues 1099-G statements to individual taxpayers, notifying them that they have received a refund or credit.

State and local tax authorities must file information returns with IRS on Form 1099-G with respect to individuals’ income tax refunds, or credits or offsets with respect to income taxes, aggregating $10 or more in one calendar year. The return must include the aggregate amount of the state or local income tax refund (credit or offset).

A “credit or offset” is a tax overpayment which, in lieu of being refunded to the taxpayer, is either applied against an existing liability of the taxpayer, or is available for application against a future liability of the taxpayer, or otherwise used or available for use for the taxpayer’s benefit.

Please consult with your tax preparer concerning the taxability of this 1099-G issued to you for Tax year 2019. If you have any questions, please call the City of Fairfield tax office at 513-867-5327.
