Last year, my wife and I filed our taxes jointly. This year, we're separated and I'm filing head of household status. I received a 1099- G for last year's state tax refund ($500) that was made out to both of our names. Who has to add the 1099-G amount to their income when filing separate returns this year? If amicable (and legal), I want my ex to do it since she makes substantially less and the added $500 income will not negatively affect her tax situation. So - can we do this? Do we split it in half, what?
