IDES Says Many Unemployment Benefits Tax Forms Are Out

ILLINOIS (RFD) — For those who received unemployment benefits this year tax forms are coming in the mail. It’s a reminder that you do have to pay taxes on those dollars and you need a 1099-G to file by April 15. Bob Gough with the State Department of Employment Security says electronic copies should already be in your inbox.

More than 346,000 people picked up benefits last year. 2018 numbers were lower than those in 2017.
