The Nevada Employment Security division says IRS tax form 1099-G will be mailed to all claimants by the end of January.
The form is used to report unemployment compensation payments to the IRS including both unemployment compensation and Pandemic Unemployment Assistance (PUA) benefits.
Claimants can update their addresses in both systems: UI.NV.gov for regular benefits and EmployNV-gov for PUA.
Employment, Training and Rehabilitation officials say they are aware that claimants may receive an inaccurate 1099-G form because of high levels of fraud perpetrated on the system during the pandemic.
Anyone who believes their tax form is incorrect can report online at www.detr.nv.gov and selecting the Unemployment Fraud tab under quick links then clicking on”1099-G Correction Request.
DETR will investigate and issue corrected forms. If the corrected form doesn’t arrive in time to file taxes, IRS recommends they file their tax return with the correct amount and have documentation ready if IRS contacts them.
Officials say it is important to report the income received accurately from UI or PUA and to keep accurate records of the income notice sent to the IRS along with related records. They say it may take up to a year for IRS to contact the claimant.
