Tax Information

Reemployment Assistance benefits are taxable income. You can elect to withhold 10% of your weekly benefit amount to cover your taxes due to the IRS. This can be handled after logging into your claim under “View and Maintain Account Information” and selecting “Payment Method and Tax Withholding Options.”    

You can log into CONNECT and click on “My 1099G/49T” to view and print the forms. For additional questions, please review our 1099-G frequently asked questions, here


The 1099-G is the tax form the department issues in January for the purposes of filing your taxes. The 1099-G will detail the amount of benefits paid to you during a specific year as well as any amounts withheld and paid to the IRS. They are made available by January 31st for the prior tax year.


The form 49T is a courtesy form providing claimants with a receipt of repayment that provides the amount paid to a Reemployment Assistance overpayment in a specific tax year. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic the 49T form will not be provided for the 2020 tax year. Any repayments to the Department through check or credit card can be used for your record keeping.
