  • Yes, you want to have the taxes withheld; otherwise you risk paying penalties and interest on underpayment of taxes.

    Not true. Hubby gets laid off every winter. The state sends you a 1099 to file. There are no penalties unless you don't file on time or pay on time. They will just deduct what you have to pay when you file your other W2's.

  • Don't freak out OP, it's OK either way. You will get a 1099 to file with your taxes.

  • I am trying not to freak out, but edd just deducted my payments down $600 from what I was getting so I was relying on getting my taxes done soon for some extra money, but now since they havent been taking out taxes will I even get any tax money?

  • I'm sure you will if you have a W2 from your job before unemployment.

  • Likely you WILL get something, IF taxes had been withheld before you went on unemployment.
