Unemployment benefits are taxable
If you receive unemployment benefits, you are responsible for meeting state and federal tax obligations for the benefits you receive. When you file your tax return, you must include any unemployment benefits you receive in the previous year. You will need a copy of your 1099G form to verify the amount of benefits you received.
