Tax question

my husband drew unemployment last year for only 2months he made less then 3 grand and we paid 300 into taxes for it. He then went back to work and with that job alone made 32 thousand for the year. my question is do we have to file the 1099 form from unemployment? we have my income as well which was only 8 grand as i didnt work all year due to having a baby. between the two of us we made well over 40 grand and paid plenty in.

  • yes because you could have over or under paid in state or federal taxes. You have to claim what you got paid.

  • First poster is correct. You need to include all 1099's. Doesn't matter if you paid taxes on it already.

  • Yes, you include it and enter the income where it is required. Then you will see in the 1040 directions what income is taxed and what income is not.

  • Yes, you must always include ALL income, no matter the source. The unemployment agency will file the 1099 with the IRS, and if you don't also include the 1099 on your return, there's a good chance that it will be flagged for audit!

  • If you don't file the 1099 you could be in a world of trouble even if you don't owe any money.

  • You must include any source of income that is over $600; you really don't want the IRS to tell you that you forgot to include the income...
