Split 1099 for state tax deduction after divorce

Last year, my ex-wife and I filed a joint return in which we deducted state taxes as a itemized deduction. In our divorce decree, the issue of how to handle the 1099 was not discussed. I recently received the 1099 from the state in the mail and was wondering what I need to do?

Do I send her lawyer a photo copy of the 1099 and let them know that we are splitting it down the middle with each of us reporting 1/2 the amount as income for 2010?

Thank you.

“Do I send her lawyer a photo copy of the 1099 and let them know that we are splitting it down the middle with each of us reporting 1/2 the amount as income for 2010?”-->I guess so; you need to send her lawyer a copy of the 1099G and let him know that you are including half on your tax return.Also you should report half the refund amount as income. If your ex doesn't report the other half, you could hear from the IRS but don't worry about it until you do.
