About 580,000 Arizonans received incorrect income tax documents
PHOENIX — About 580,000 Arizona residents received incorrect income tax documents, the state department of revenue said in a Tuesday release.
The incorrect documents sent out were 1099-G forms, which basically confirm the previous year’s tax refund. The incorrect documents sent out this year contained tax information from 2014, not 2015.
“Once the department of revenue became aware of the situation immediate steps were taken to resolve it with department officials launching actions to have new forms, with the correct information, re-sent to affected taxpayers as quickly as possible,” the release read.
The situation does not affect anyone who did not receive an Arizona state income tax refund in 2015 or earlier or those who did not itemize their deductions.
Those who have access to last year’s taxes can do without the 1099-G, as it contains the same information as the form.
