Ready to file your income taxes


In Rhode Island, all unemployment insurance (UI) benefits are fully taxable and must be reported with the customer’s annual tax return.

Each year the RI Department of Labor and Training provides its customers with an individual accounting of the UI benefits for the previous year on form 1099-G. It is critical that the department has the correct address information for each customer. Please follow the link to the left below to submit an address update if:

  • You have moved since you last received unemployment insurance benefits, or;

  • If you believe the Unemployment Insurance Service Center (UISC) may have the incorrect mailing address for you.
