The Department of Employment, Training and Rehabilitation says some claimants may have received 1099-G forms in the past few days that are incorrect or fraudulent.
Officials advised anyone receiving forms that don’t look right should contact DETR. Those forms were mailed to regular (UI) claimants and those receiving benefits through the Pandemic Unemployment Assistance (PUA) program.
The reports can be filed online through www.detr.nv.gov and selecting the Unemployment Fraud tab under Quick Links on the left then clicking on 1099-G Correction Request. A spokesman said no other action is necessary by the claimant.
She said it’s important to accurately report the income received on tax returns and keep related tax records. IRS could contact people about those claims up to a year later.
