Tennessee Unemployment Benefit Tax Information Now Available

1099-G Forms Provided Online and Mailed to Claimants
 
NASHVILLE - Recipients of Tennessee unemployment benefits during 2011 can now access the information they need for income tax purposes on the state Department of Labor & Workforce Development homepage: https://tdlwd.tn.gov/ui1099/. They can also go straight to the log-in page: https://tdlwd.tn.gov/ui1099/login.aspx.
 
“By entering their birth date or the same PIN they used to certify or inquire on their unemployment claim, claimants can view a summary of total unemployment benefits paid to them, view the total amount of federal income tax withheld, and print a summary of this information,” said Labor & Workforce Development Commissioner Karla Davis.
 
The department also began mailing the IRS Form 1099-G to more than 293,000 benefit recipients on January 18, 2012. The forms will reach claimants no later than January 31, 2012. The U.S. Postal Service will not forward 1099-G forms.
 
Recipients of unemployment benefits are not required to submit a copy of their 1099-G form with their income tax return. If claimants do not receive their form in the mail and do not have access to the Internet, any Tennessee Department of Labor & Workforce Development Career Center allows use of a computer to print the needed form. Claimants unable to visit a Career Center and not having Internet access may send a written request, including their name, address, date of birth, Social Security number, and phone number, with signature, to
