A link to view your 2022 1099-G. This means your 1099-G form has been mailed. This is how your 2022 1099-G form will look:
Your 1099-G will be viewable as a PDF file, which is formatted so you can easily print it yourself. If you received unemployment benefits in Minnesota before 2022, you can also view your previous 1099-G forms.
The IRS tells us what to include on Line 1 of your 1099-G. It MUST include the total/GROSS amount of ALL payments that were made to you during the year. Here are detailed instructions on how you can reproduce this calculation.
The IRS requires that we include all the following in your TOTAL, GROSS payments:
Federal tax withholding: federal tax withholding is optional. If we withheld any federal taxes on your behalf, it is because you elected to have us to do so.
Minnesota state tax withholding: Minnesota state tax withholding is optional. If we withheld any Minnesota state income taxes on your behalf, it is because you elected to have us to do so.
Child support payments: if you have a child support enforcement order, we are legally required to redirect a portion of your benefits toward child support payments.
Overpayment offsets: if you have an overpayment on your account, we may have offset some or all your unemployment benefits to repay that overpayment. We may have done this at your direction or because it was legally required.
When you were adding up all your payments, if you saw amounts in the Other Distributions column, you could click on the dollar amounts to see what kinds of distributions took place. Child Support and Overpayment Offsets are required by law. Unemployment benefits are taxable under federal and state laws, but you decide whether you want any withholding done.
Line 1 of your 1099-G is a total of all unemployment benefit payments made to you. If you repaid benefits you previously received, the amount you repaid will NOT be subtracted from Line 1.
However, you will need to report your repayments on your taxes. We will give you a summary of your repayments on your 1099-G form. That section of the 1099-G form reads:
Repayment of benefits
In 2022 you repaid benefits that you had been overpaid. The amount you repaid has not been deducted from your total Unemployment Compensation (Box 1).
See your federal tax form instructions for how to report repayments. Here is a summary of the amounts you repaid in 2022.
$0.00 was applied to your 2022 overpayment balance.
You can find the latest instructions on how to adjust your taxes to reflect repayments through IRS Publication 525. On that page, look for the section regarding “repayment of unemployment compensation”.
