Income Tax 1099G Information - Unemployment Insurance Claimants

 

Form 1099-G, Statement for Recipients of Certain Government Payments, is issued to any individual who received Maryland Unemployment Insurance (UI) benefits for the prior calendar year. 1099-Gs reflect Maryland UI benefit payment amounts issued  within that calendar year. This may be different from the week ending date for which the benefits were paid.

1099-Gs are required, by law, to be mailed by the end of January (January 31st) for the prior calendar year.

1099-Gs are only issued to the actual individual to whom benefits were paid. If you have moved since filing for UI benefits, 1099-Gs are NOT forwarded by the United States Postal Service. You must contact the Department of Labor, Licensing & Regulation (DLLR) - Benefit Payment Control (BPC) Unit, for a duplicate to be sent to your new address.
