  4. In the Refunds Taxable in 20XX Overrides section, make an entry in the Income tax refunds, if itemized last year [Override] field for both the taxpayer and spouse, if applicable.

The amounts entered in the overrides will flow directly to Schedule 1, Line 1. No worksheet will generate in the Check Return tab if the overrides are used.

Intuit ProConnect calculates state and local taxable refunds using the Recoveries of Itemized Deductions worksheet in IRS Publication 525.

According to the instructions for Form 1040, none of your refund is taxable if, in the year you paid the tax, you either didn't itemize deductions or elected to deduct state and local general sales taxes instead of state and local income taxes.
