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.    

Taxes are not automatically withheld unless you request it 

If you are still receiving unemployment benefits in 2014, you may want to consider withholding taxes from your weekly benefit payment.  You can select withholding at the state and/or federal level. 

Watch the video for step-by-step instructions on how to access your 1099G statement or request tax withholding from your weekly benefit payment.
