ALBANY – The State Labor Department, Thursday, announced that it is improving the process for Unemployment Insurance customers to get their 1099-G form this tax season.

The department will be automatically mailing the form to New Yorkers who claimed benefits in 2022 and have not opted to receive the form electronically.

The 1099-G provides the total amount of money a customer received in benefits during the year, as well as any adjustments or tax withholding made to those benefits. In the past, customers would have to contact the Department by phone to receive the 1099-G by mail. Customers can expect the forms to arrive in mailboxes by the end of January 2023.

“Tax season can be a frustrating time, and we want to do our best to make it as easy as possible for customers,” said State Department of Labor Commissioner Roberta Reardon. “There is no reason to call to request the forms. This proactive approach ensures that New Yorkers who received these essential benefits are able to complete their tax forms properly and successfully on time.”
