Act 115 Refund
The IRS and the Hawaiʻi Department of Taxation released guidance on the taxability of the Act 115, Session Laws Hawaii 2022, (“Act 115”) refund. The IRS guidance can be found here.

As an additional note, since the Act 115 payment amount was not included in the 1099-G for tax year 2022, no correction is required and taxpayers will not be issued a revised 1099-G form.
