So, the bottom line is that since I paid too much state tax and got a refund, the feds consider this income, is that right?

If you itemized on your 2000 tax return and deducted state taxes, yes. If you took the standard deduction on your 2000 tax return, NO!

And, now I have to go through Turbo Tax and figure out where to enter the refund amount. I assume it would be somewhere in the income section?

I would think so. I'm not a TurboTax user so I'm afraid I can't help there.

And yes, I am confused!

I'm sorry. I know that's not helpful, but I am.
