The 1099-G, Statement for Recipients of Certain Government Payments, is the government income tax form, used to provide a receipt of government income in the last year. This includes individuals who received state unemployment, a state income tax refund, and other government provided income. You may receive more than one 1099-G if you had multiple forms of government provided income. A summary of various 1099s issued by the State and contact information for questions and inquiries can be found here.
The payer field on the 1099-G will note “Kansas Department of Labor” for your receipt of unemployment benefits. In the case of unemployment, the 1099-G documents the total benefits paid to the claimant during the previous calendar year. The same information is provided to the Internal Revenue Service.
The Kansas Department of Labor will mail a Form 1099-G in January to individuals who received unemployment benefits at any time during the previous calendar year.
This diagram shows how to determine which agency sent you the Form 1099-G and where information about unemployment compensation is found.
