1099G is a tax form sent to people who have received unemployment insurance benefits. You use it when you are filing federal and state income taxes to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) and Oregon Department of Revenue. In January of each year, we will send you a 1099G form for your prior year’s benefits paid and any taxes withheld. If you do not receive your 1099G in the mail, you can access it from the Online Claim System starting in February.
There are two reasons why you may not have received a 1099G:
- We send 1099Gs to the address we have on record for each person who received unemployment benefits. If you moved without updating your address, your 1099G went to your old address.
- If all your benefit payments were made after Dec. 31, you won’t get a 1099G for the prior tax year. Instead, you’ll get a 1099G for the next tax year.
The 1099G form reports the gross amount of unemployment compensation you have received, not the net amount. Once you subtract the federal and state income taxes from your 1099G amount, it should match what you actually received.
