Tax Forms for Customers Receiving Unemployment Insurance and Temporary Caregiver Insurance Benefits During 2014
January 13, 2015
The RI Department of Labor and Training announced today that Unemployment Insurance (UI) and Temporary Caregiver Insurance (TCI) customers who received benefits during 2014 can download and print their 1099-G tax forms starting at noon today, Jan. 13, 2015, from the DLT website rather than wait to receive them in the mail.
Because UI and TCI benefits are fully taxable, anyone who received benefits between Jan. 1, 2014, and Dec. 31, 2014, must declare these benefits on their 2014 tax returns. The 1099-G form states the amount that a claimant received in benefits. It is reported to the IRS.
If claimants have moved since they last collected UI benefits or if they believe the UI Service Center may have the wrong mailing address for them, DLT asks that they update their contact information online at https://uiclaims.ri.gov/CustAddChg/index.aspx.
More information on UI eligibility and requirements is available online at http://www.dlt.ri.gov/ui/.
The Temporary Caregiver Insurance program can provide eligible claimants with up to four weeks of caregiver benefits to care for a seriously ill child, spouse, domestic partner, parent, parent-in-law or grandparent or to bond with a newborn child, new adopted child or new foster-care child.
More information on TCI eligibility and requirements is available online at http://www.dlt.ri.gov/tdi/.
