The Kansas Department of Labor (KDOL) will mail 1099-G forms in January. Unemployment benefits are considered regular income for tax purposes, and so are subject to both federal and state income taxes. The 1099-G assists in claiming the income on your tax forms. If you address has changed since you filed for unemployment benefits, you will need to register your change of address with KDOL in order to receive your 1099-G form. You can register a change of address online at https://www.dol.ks.gov/addrchange1099g.aspx .
