Line 48400 - Refund

Note: Line 48400 was line 484 before tax year 2019.

If your total payable (line 43500 of your return) is less than your total credits (line 48200 of your return), enter the difference on line 48400 of your return. This amount is your refund. Generally, if the difference is $2 or less for 2020, you will not receive a refund.
