1099-G Tax Statement Available Online Only

If you received Unemployment Insurance benefits during 2013, the New Jersey Department of Labor and Workforce Development (LWD) will provide you with Income Tax Form 1099-G (Certain Government Payments). However, the form will no longer be automatically mailed.

Unemployment Insurance benefits recipients will now have two options:

  1. View and print a copy of Form 1099-G by using an online 1099-G Income Tax Statement application at the New Jersey Department of Labor and Workforce Development's Unemployment Insurance Benefits page. In order to access the form on the LWD website, you will need your online user ID, password, and Personal Identification Number (PIN). If you cannot remember your PIN or are having difficulty with it, you can contact a Reemployment Call Center. The Reemployment Call Centers are:

      Freehold (732) 761-2020
      Union City (201) 601-4100
      Cumberland (856) 507-2340
      Out-of-state claimants may call: (888) 795-6672

  2. If you are unable to access the self-service system to obtain the 1099-G statement, you can contact your Reemployment Call Center to request a copy. The 2013 Tax Form 1099-G will be issued in January, and will cover the previous calendar year in which benefits were paid. 

IMPORTANT: If you also received Disability Benefits During Unemployment (DDU) or Paid Family Leave Insurance (FLI) benefits during the tax year 2013, you will still receive your tax information on form 1099-G by mail.  If you also received unemployment benefits during that same period, you will have to visit the LWD website to obtain the 1099-G tax information or contact a Reemployment Call Center to request a copy.​
