Income Taxes & Your Unemployment Benefits

If you are receiving unemployment benefits, you must report all benefits you receive to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) on your federal tax return. In January, we begin mailing IRS Form 1099-G, which provides all the information you need to report your benefits, to individuals who received benefits during the prior calendar year.

Beginning January 15, you can find the amount of benefits we paid you and any federal taxes withheld on Unemployment Benefits Services (View IRS 1099-G Information) or by calling Tele-Serv at 800-558-8321 (select option 2). TWC staff does not have that information until January 15.
