Tuesday, January 28, 2014 | 02:19am


NASHVILLE - Recipients of Tennessee unemployment benefits during 2013 can now access the information they need for income tax purposes on the state Department of Labor & Workforce Development homepage: They can also go straight to the log-in page:

By entering their birth date or the same PIN they used to certify or inquire on their unemployment claim, claimants can view a summary of total unemployment benefits paid to them, view the total amount of federal income tax withheld, and print a summary of this information.

(IMPORTANT – The birth date must be entered in the exact format requested on the form.)

The department also began mailing the IRS Form 1099-G to more than 172,000 benefit recipients on January 14, 2014. The forms will reach claimants no later than January 31, 2014. The U.S. Postal Service will not forward 1099-G forms.

Recipients of unemployment benefits are not required to submit a copy of their 1099-G form with their income tax return. If claimants do not receive their form in the mail and do not have access to the Internet, they may send a written request, including their name, address, date of birth, Social Security number, and phone number, with signature, to

Special Services Unit
Tennessee Department of Labor & Workforce Development
220 French Landing Drive
Nashville, TN 37243-1002

Questions concerning repayments that are not shown on the total amount of the IRS Form 1099G should be referred to the Internal Revenue Service at (800) 829-1040.
