ADOL posts unemployment compensation tax forms online

Alabamians who received unemployment compensation benefits in 2019 can now view and download their form 1099-G online at www.labor.alabama.gov, according to the Alabama Department of Labor.

The form 1099-G details how much unemployment compensation claimants received during the calendar year as well as information about taxes withheld from unemployment benefits.

This information must be reported each year.

The forms are also available for years 2010-2018.

According to the most current information available, Franklin County’s unemployment rate is sitting at 2.3 percent, which equates to 336 people. The state unemployment is at 2.7 percent, as compared to 3.5 percent nationwide.

“This convenient access to important tax forms is available to all Alabamians who received unemployment compensation benefits,” said ADOL secretary Fitzgerald Washington. “Claimants should note that if they access their form online, no forms will be mailed to them, so they should print them for their records.”

According to the ADOL, these forms are password protected and must be accessed with a claimant’s Social Security number.

A printed form will be mailed to the address of record Jan. 31. Updates to addresses can be made, and the 1099-G can be accessed, at https://labor.alabama.gov/uc/ICCS/default.aspx.
