Why did I receive a Form 1099G?

The Form 1099G, Certain Government Payments, reports the total taxable unemployment benefits paid to you from the Tennessee Department of Labor & Workforce Development (TDLWD) for a calendar year. One Form 1099G is printed and also available on Jobs4TN.gov for claimants who received regular Tennessee Unemployment Compensation benefits, Disaster Unemployment Assistance (DUA), and/or benefits from the Trade Readjustment Act (TRA).

Tennessee does not have a state income tax. Your benefits are taxable and reportable on your federal return but, you do not need to attach a copy of the Form 1099G to your federal income tax return. Benefits are reported based on the issue date of the payment, not the week ending date(s) that were paid. Benefit information is reported to the IRS.
