“In a regular job situation you have an employer who is withholding money on your behalf and paying it into the IRS for you what a 1099 is it’s a way of getting income where no one is withholding money on your behalf so you are responsible for your own taxes,”said Brandy Romero, tax specialist.
So if you received unemployment this year you will get a 1099-G in the mail from the Department of Workforce Solutions by Jan. 31st. But in order to get that form, you should make sure your mailing address
Those who should keep their eye out for a 1099-G are those who got unemployment insurance—pandemic unemployment assistance—federal or state extended benefits – or lost wages assistance
“It depends on how much you made and if you have to claim a percentage of the unemployment that you made, there are a lot of complexities when filing that but your tax preparer will know how to do that,” Romero said.
Now if you have a child under the age of 17 chances are you have to be getting a child tax credit every month. Along with that check, you should have also received a 6419 letter every month that shows the exact amount you were given.
