– Individuals who collected unemployment insurance in 2014 can take
control of their tax preparation and sign up to be notified when the
1099G tax form is available, the Illinois Department of Employment
Security said today.
Unemployment insurance benefits are subject to federal and state
income taxes. Signing up today to receive an email notice in January
when the 1099G form is available electronically saves money, speeds
tax preparation and follows business best practices. Last year, the
email program saved IDES and taxpayers $200,000 in postage and
To sign up for the email notice, go to the IDES website and type
1099G into the search function at the top/middle of the homepage.
Individuals who have not created a username and password to manage
their account will be prompted to do so. Once registered, a notice
will be emailed in January with instructions on how to print the
document from IDES’ website.
The 1099G is needed to complete state and federal tax returns. The
form is available for the last seven years. If the 1099G tax form is
misplaced, another can be printed from IDES’ website.
IDES increasingly uses email to communicate information to workers,
employers and other stakeholders. IDES’ monthly email newsletter
includes more than 1 million email addresses provided to the
Department. Emails have not replaced official correspondence between
IDES, employers and workers.
IDES will not use email or other electronic communication to seek
personal or banking information. IDES emails include content and
links that are clearly labeled as IDES information. If an individual
receives an email claiming to be from IDES that seeks sensitive
information and encourages a reply, it should be viewed
