What is a Form 1099-G?

Modified on Wed, 24 Jan 2024 at 06:32 AM

A Form 1099-G is a document sent by a federal, state, or local government agency to report certain income that may need to be reported on your return. Income listed on this form can include:

  • Unemployment compensation

  • State or local income tax refunds, credits, or offsets

  • Reemployment trade adjustment assistance (RTAA) payments

  • Taxable grants

  • Agricultural payments

If you received unemployment income, the amount of unemployment compensation should be reported in box 1 and the related federal taxes withheld in box 4. If state tax was withheld, that information would be reported in boxes 10a-11.
