1099s Available Online for Unemployment Insurance Customers
The RI Department of Labor and Training announced today that Unemployment Insurance customers may opt to download their 1099-G tax forms immediately from the Department of Labor and Training website rather than wait to receive them in the mail. Because Unemployment Insurance benefits are taxable, anyone who received benefits between January 1, 2013 and December 31, 2013 must declare these benefits on their 2013 tax returns.
Those who choose to download and print their 1099s now may do so by visiting the department's home page at www.dlt.ri.gov and clicking on the 1099 feature.
The department will begin mailing the form to customers this week. Therefore, customers who download the form may also receive a hard copy in the mail.
For the 2013 calendar year, the department plans to issue approximately 56,000 1099 tax forms to Rhode Island Unemployment Insurance claimants.
