Unemployment insurance benefits are subject to federal and state income taxes. Any unemployment insurance benefits you receive are fully taxable provided you are required to file a tax return. You will be mailed a statement of benefits paid to you after the year has ended. The Internal Revenue Service will be given this same information. When you file your claim, you will be given the option to have federal income tax withheld from your weekly unemployment insurance benefits in the amount of 10%.
Have you been discriminated against by a potential or current employer -- as a job applicant or current employee? To best protect your legal rights you should discuss your situation with an employment lawyer. Meet with a local employment attorney sooner rather than later to protect your rights.
