Unemployment benefits are taxable income under federal and Minnesota state law. Request, stop, or change your income tax withholding by logging in to your account online at www.uimn.org or by calling the automated phone system.
No later than January 31, an IRS Form 1099-G will be mailed to your last known address, showing the total benefits paid to you for the prior year and the federal and state income taxes withheld. You can view and print your 1099-G form online by logging in to your account at www.uimn.org
If you were overpaid unemployment benefits in Minnesota or another state and have not repaid them, 50 or 100 percent of each weekly benefit payment will be deducted and applied to the balance you owe.
If you are required to pay child support in Minnesota or any other state, child support will be withheld from your weekly benefit amount. If you believe that too much child support is being withheld, contact the child support agency that is enforcing the support order.
