If you received unemployment benefits, you will need to file taxes with the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). You can download your 1099-G income statement from the MyBenefits portal. Remember, even if you were unemployed, you still have to file income taxes.

The most common use of the 1099-G is to report unemployment compensation as well as any state or local income tax refunds you received that year.  A 1099-G is a tax form from the IRS showing the amount of refund, credit or interest issued to you in the calendar year filing from your individual income tax returns.


Access your 1099-G by logging in to your account on MyBenefits. For step-by-step instructions, click here.

The IRS has instructions on how to use the 1099-G form when filing income taxes.

A sample 1099-G is shown here:
