Unemployment benefits are considered regular income for tax purposes

by Audri Smith | Jan 11, 2019
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 tax forms. KDOL will mail 1099-G forms in mid-January. If your 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 after you log in at http://www.getkansasbenefits.gov/Intent.aspx
