This is my first time on unemployment and it was my only income for the year. So my question is..do I still have to file taxes and will I get anything back? I'm pretty sure UE does not qualify for the EIC but I am wondering if I still get something back for my son?Answer Question

Unemployment compensation. You must include in your income all unemployment compensation you receive. You should receive a Form 1099-G, Certain Government Payments, showing the amount paid to you. Generally, you enter unemployment compensation on line 19 of Form 1040, line 13 of Form 1040A, or line 3 of Form 1040EZ.
