1099-G Tax Information

Use your 1099-G Form to File your Taxes

Your unemployment payments are reported as income to the IRS. If you have received unemployment insurance payments last year, you will need to report the total amount (as found on your 1099-G) on your federal taxes. The Form 1099-G reports the total taxable unemployment benefits paid to you from the Tennessee Department of Labor & Workforce Development for a calendar year and the federal income tax withheld, if applicable.

Your benefits are taxable and reportable on your federal return, but you do not need to attach a copy of the Form 1099-G to your federal income tax return. Benefits are reported based on the issue date of the payment, not the week ending date(s) that was paid.

Digital and print 1099-G documentation will be available by January 31, 2017.
