1099-G Forms to be Mailed Automatically to New Yorkers


The New York State Department of Labor is reminding New Yorkers that unemployment tax forms will be automatically mailed to those who claimed benefits in 2023. The 1099-G provides the total amount of money a customer received in benefits during the year, as well as any adjustments or tax withholding made to those benefits.

Last year, customers could opt out of receiving their 1099-G by mail, but that is no longer an option. Customers can expect the forms to arrive in mailboxes by the end of January. By mid-January, customers will be able to access their 1099-G tax forms on its website. For more information about the form, click here. This process is part of NYSDOL’s ongoing effort to improve customer experience.

“We aim to alleviate the stress of tax season by simplifying the process for our customers,” said New York State Department of Labor Commissioner Roberta Reardon. “Eliminating the need for calls to request forms takes a proactive stance, ensuring timely and accurate tax completion for New Yorkers who’ve received unemployment benefits, making the process smoother and more successful.”
