PRESS RELEASE
 

Tax Forms for Customers Receiving Unemployment Insurance and Temporary Caregiver Insurance Benefits During 2014
Are Available for Download from DLT Website

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.

UI customers can download their 1099-G forms at https://uiclaims.ri.gov/1099form/. TCI customers can download their tax forms at https://uiclaims.ri.gov/tci1099/.

On Jan. 20, DLT will begin printing the 1099-G forms, preparing to mail them to all UI and TCI customers who have not already downloaded theirs from the website. Therefore, customers who download their 1099-G tax forms after Jan. 20 also may receive a hard copy in the mail. For the 2014 calendar year, DLT will issue nearly 50,000 tax forms to Rhode Islanders who collected UI and received TCI benefits (46,314 for UI claimants and 3,614 for TCI beneficiaries).

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/.
