Important Information Regarding your Unemployment Insurance
1099-G Tax Statement
Form 1099-G reports the total taxable unemployment compensation paid to any individual who received New Jersey Unemployment Insurance (UI) benefits for a specific calendar year.
The online 1099-G application will provide you with your New Jersey Department of Labor and Workforce Development (LWD) 1099-G Income Tax Statement, which you can view and print through the application.
To use the online 1099-G application, go to the Unemployment Insurance page of the LWD website at www.njuifile.net. Once you have signed into the application, click on View/Print 1099-G Tax Statement and then simply click continue after reviewing the instructions.
You will need your online user ID, password and Personal Identification Number (PIN) to access your tax information. Before trying to access your tax information, you must have a PIN. If you cannot remember your PIN or are having difficulty with it, please contact one of our Regional Call Centers for assistance.
Total Taxable Unemployment Insurance includes:
- Unemployment Insurance (UI) benefits
- Trade Readjustment Allowance (TRA) benefits
- Disaster Unemployment Assistance (DUA)benefits
If you received Disability Benefits During Unemployment (DDU) or Paid Family Leave Insurance (FLI) benefits during the tax year, you will still receive your tax information on form 1099-G by mail. If you also received unemployment benefits during that same period, you will have to visit the website to obtain the 1099-G tax information.
Unemployment benefits are taxable and reportable on federal income tax returns only, but you are not required to include a copy of the 1099-G tax statement with your federal income tax return. LWD provides the tax information to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS).
