Reminder that Unemployment Benefits are reported income


If you received any type of unemployment insurance benefits in 2012, a 1099-G was mailed to you between January 22 and January 25, 2013. Form 1099-G, Certain Government Payments, is now available online.  This form provides important tax information that must be reported on your federal income tax return.

To view or print this tax information online, login to our website at using your normal login information, then select the 1099 tab.  You will have the option to view and print your tax forms.

The 1099-G documentation shows the total unemployment benefits paid and any tax withholding for the 2012 calendar year. If you have moved, the 1099-G form placed in the mail will NOT be forwarded to your new address, so this new online option should be helpful.

Please remember that unemployment insurance benefits are paid faster if you request your benefit payments using the Internet on Sundays from 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
