Unemployment insurance benefits provide temporary financial assistance to workers unemployed through no fault of their own that meet West Virginia's eligibility requirements. In order to qualify for this benefit program, you must have West Virginia wages during the past 12 to 18 months and have earned at least a minimum amount of wages as determined by West Virginia's guidelines. You must also be able to work and available for work each week that you are collecting benefits. Eligibility for unemployment compensation will be determined during the process of filing a claim. Individuals who are unsure if they qualify should still apply.

Unemployment compensation claimants can file weekly claim certifications online, view claim information, including six weeks of payment history, and apply for direct deposit of their benefits. Employers can file quarterly wage reports, pay contributions and delinquent payments online, and register for electronic submission of separation information.

Appeals made to the Unemployment Compensation Division are heard and decided upon by the Board of Review.

Have questions about unemployment and taxes? Be sure to visit our Unemployment Tax Resource Center for help with unemployment related topics and find out how to file your Form G for free.

Did you receive Form G for unemployment income that you didn’t receive? States are reporting an uptick in fraudulent claims. If you were a victim of unemployment identity theft and received Form G (with an amount in Box 1), you should:

  • Contact the G issuer for a corrected form showing $0 benefits received.
  • File your return reporting the income you actually received.
  • Check your state department of revenue website to see if the state issued additional directions.

G Form for state tax refunds, credits or offsets

If the state issues you a refund, credit or offset of state or local income, that amount will be shown in Box 2 of your G form. The most common reason for receiving a refund is because of an overpayment of state taxes, as explained in the example below. This payment may or may not be taxable to you. If you claimed the standard deduction on your previous year’s return, the amount is not taxable to you.

However, if you claimeditemized deductions on the previous year’s return, all or part of the refund is taxable in the year you receive the refund if you also deducted state and local income taxes, and received a tax benefit from deducting those taxes.

Let’s walk through Maria’s taxes as an example.

  • In , Maria had $3, withheld from her paycheck for state taxes. For that tax year she chose to claim itemized deductions and deducted the $3, state income from her federal income taxes.
  • After completing her state tax return, she realized she actually only owed $2, In , Maria’s state issued her a $ refund on the amount of tax that was overpaid and sent her Form G to report the payment.
  • However, because she received a tax benefit from deducting those taxes on her federal return, the state refund payment will be taxable to her for tax year
  • To determine the taxable portion, she will refer to the Form Instructions, line

Some states simply mail a postcard with instructions on how go online and download your G.

Other payments covered by Form G

The other reasons you may receive Form G include the following types of payments:

  • Reemployment trade adjustment assistance (RTAA) payments. These are shown in Box 5.
  • Taxable grants received from federal, state and local governments. These are shown in Box 6.
  • Taxable payments from the Department of Agriculture. These are shown in Box 7.
  • Market gains on Commodity Credit Corporation loans. These are shown in Box 9.

About your G/INT

What is Form G/INT?

Form G/INT is a report of income you received from Virginia Tax during The IRS requires government agencies to report certain payments made during the year, because those payments are considered taxable income for the recipients. Virginia Tax must report any refund or overpayment credit amount issued during  to individuals who claimed itemized deductions on their income tax returns for the year shown in Box 3 of the Form. We must also report any interest paid on refunds.

The IRS normally requires that refund and interest amounts be reported on two separate forms: Form G (refunds and overpayments) and Form INT (interest). To avoid the confusion that may be caused by sending multiple statements for the same tax year, we issue a single statement showing separate refund and interest amounts.

What should I do with this statement? Do I need to pay the amount shown?

The Form G/INT is not a bill, and you should not send any type of payment in response to the statement. If you prepare your own taxes, you should review the federal return instructions for reporting state income tax refunds, or visit the IRS website for more information. If a tax professional handles your taxes, you should give this statement to the preparer, along with your other tax information, such as W-2s.

This statement shows a refund amount and an interest amount. What am I supposed to report as income?

You may need to report both amounts as income. If so, the interest would be included with the other interest income you report on your federal return. For information on federal reporting requirements, visit the IRS website.

Why would I have to report my refund as income?

In computing itemized deductions on your federal tax return, you are allowed to deduct state income taxes paid during the year. Most people deduct the amount of income tax withheld, as shown on Form W-2, plus any Virginia estimated tax payments they made during the year. Since this deduction reduces federal taxable income, if any part of the state tax deducted on the federal return is later refunded, that amount has to be reported as taxable income for the year in which the refund is issued.

Example: John Jones deducted $5, in state income tax on his  federal return, based on the Virginia withholding amount from his W When he filed his  Virginia return, he found he was entitled to a refund of $1,, which was issued on June 1, This means that he only paid $4, in state income taxes for , rather than the $5, he claimed. Therefore, Mr. Jones will be required to report the difference of $1, (the amount of his refund) on his federal return for

I received a Virginia refund during , but Virginia Tax applied the money to a bill for another year. Doesn't that mean this statement is wrong? Do I still have to report this as income?

Virginia law requires us to apply refunds or credits to outstanding bills. The application of funds doesn't change the fact that you claimed an overpayment for the year on your statement. Even though you didn't actually receive a check, an overpayment transaction took place, and you are subject to the same federal reporting requirements as if you had received a refund check.

I did show an overpayment on my  return, but I had the money applied as a credit to Since I didn't get a refund, do I still have to report this?

A refund and a credit are simply different types of overpayment transactions. We must include any overpayment allowed on your  return on our Form G/INT. As a result, you are subject to the same federal reporting requirements as if you had received a refund check.

This statement says the refund was issued for I already reported that refund on my  federal return. Can you correct the statement? If not, what should I do?

We are required to report refund transactions in the year they actually occur. Since your  refund was issued in , we cannot issue a Form G/INT as if the transaction took place in You should contact the IRS to find out whether you should amend your  federal return or take some other action to correct the reporting error.

This statement shows a refund of $1, for  I did get a refund for that amount, but I amended my return a few months later, and had to pay $ back. Shouldn't the statement say my net refund was $1,?

Under federal law, Virginia Tax is required to report the actual refund or credit amount. We cannot net the amount against other transactions. Therefore, your Form G/INT is correct as issued. For information on how to report the income and deduct your payment on your  federal return, visit the IRS website.

This statement says the refund was issued for Why should I have to report that now? Why was a  refund issued in ?

Our records show that a refund for  was issued on your account during , and that you claimed itemized deductions for The refund could have resulted from an amended return, or some other adjustment that was made to your account. Since the transaction took place in , the income would be reported on your  federal return. If you don't have a record of filing an amended Virginia return for , or of resolving a claim or dispute related to your  return during , please contact a Customer Service representative at , or write to us at PO Box , Richmond, Virginia for an explanation.

I have checked my records and I'm sure this statement is incorrect. What should I do?

Contact a Customer Service representative at , or write to us at PO Box , Richmond, Virginia to request a letter of correction. Be sure to include your Social Security number, and explain why you believe the Form G/INT is incorrect.

VEC continues to send mistaken unemployment tax forms, Chesapeake retiree gets $18K statement

PORTSMOUTH, Va. (WAVY) &#; 10 On Your Side has done numerous stories on people having problems with unemployment, but lately we&#;re getting complaints about a particular kind. They&#;re causing concern especially this time of the year when people are filing their taxes.

At 71, Willie Carter of Chesapeake got an unwelcome surprise a few weeks ago in the mail. It was a tax statement from the Virginia Employment Commission, form G, saying he received $17, in unemployment benefits last year.

&#;I&#;m retired and I have no need for unemployment,&#; Carter said in a Monday morning interview. He saw our previous reports on people getting similar mistaken tax documents.

It&#;s the largest mistaken benefits amount we&#;ve seen so far and amounts to more than just an inconvenience, although for Carter, that too has been considerable.

&#;I started calling the [VEC], even sending out documentation to them – and they just put you from one phone to another. You never get in contact with anybody you can speak to and I never got a response and I just finally decided to call [10 On Your Side].&#;

The money is subject to federal tax.

&#;I’m ready to file my taxes, and I don’t want to file them knowing that this is hanging over my head and probably get hit later with a fraudulent tax form or something like that,&#; Carter said.

He has filed a fraud claim and got a confirmation number. We will send his info to the VEC&#;s fraud department. If you have a problem with unemployment, contact us at [email protected]

Report Unemployment Identity Theft

en español

States have experienced a surge in fraudulent unemployment claims filed by organized crime rings using stolen identities that were accessed or purchased from past data breaches, the majority of which occurred in previous years and involved larger criminal efforts unrelated to unemployment. Criminals are using these stolen identities to fraudulently collect benefits across multiple states.

For information and reporting other types of unemployment fraud, including claimant fraud or employer fraud, visit our Report Unemployment Fraud page.

Signs that you may be a victim of unemployment identity theft

Most victims of unemployment identity theft are unaware that claims have been filed and/or that benefits have been collected using their identities. Many people only find out unemployment identity theft occurred when they receive something in the mail, such as a payment or state issued G tax form that’s incorrect or for benefits not received.

Sample form from the website: IRS form Certain Government Payments G

You may be a victim of unemployment identity theft if you received:

  • Mail from a government agency about an unemployment claim or payment and you did not recently file for unemployment benefits. This includes unexpected payments or debit cards and could be from any state.
  • A G tax form reflecting unemployment benefits you weren't expecting. Box 1 on this form may show unemployment benefits you did not receive or an amount that exceeds your records for the unemployment benefits you did receive. The form itself may be from a state in which you do not live or did not file for benefits.
  • While you are still employed, a notice from your employer indicating that your employer received a request for information about an unemployment claim in your name.

Reporting unemployment identity theft

  1. Report unemployment identity theft to the state where it occurred. Use the State Directory for Reporting Unemployment Identity Theft, below, to report it to the state.
    • You may not receive an immediate confirmation from the state when you submit a report. Time estimates for how long this process takes vary by state.
    • The state may require additional documentation (like filing a police report or a sworn affidavit) in order to open an investigation; they will review your case and make a determination. Each state has different requirements and a different process for investigating identity theft.
    • If you received a G tax form for benefits you didn’t receive, the state will need to issue you a corrected G tax form and will update the tax record with the IRS on your behalf.
  2. When you file your income taxes, ONLY include income you actually received. Do not wait to receive a corrected G to file your taxes.
    • The processing of your tax return should not be delayed while your report of unemployment identity theft is under investigation.
    • If you have not filed your taxes yet, do not report the incorrect G income on your tax return.
    • If you have already filed your taxes, do not file an amended return. The IRS will issue additional guidance regarding your next steps. Refer to the Identity Theft and Unemployment Benefits page on for updates and additional tax filing information.
  3. Check your credit report for suspicious activity or unauthorized lines of credit opened. You can request free credit reports every week from each of the three credit bureaus (Equifax, Experian, Transunion) through or call 1- ; you will need to provide your name, address, social security number, and date of birth to verify your identity.
    • Consider freezing your credit. It’s the best way you can protect against having new accounts opened in your name. Visit the Credit Freeze page on the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) website.
  4. Report unemployment identity theft that occurred during the COVID pandemic to the U.S. Department of Justice’s National Center for Disaster Fraud. In addition to reporting with the state, reporting with the National Center for Disaster Fraud helps law enforcement stop future unemployment identity theft. Filing this report with the National Center for Disaster Fraud will also notify the U.S. Department of Labor’s Office of Inspector General, which is the primary agency responsible for investigating unemployment fraud. You may not receive a response back after submitting this information.

RICHMOND, Va. (WWBT) - A lot of viewers have asked us about those stimulus payments this year. The check from over the summer and the $ that went out recently. The big question we get is ‘will we owe taxes on that money?’

The short answer is no. There is no tax burden on those stimulus checks. But experts say that’s not the case if you got an unemployment check this year.

Virginians do not owe state income taxes on those unemployment checks, however, there are Federal Income taxes that must be paid.

If you didn’t get that automatically taken out of each unemployment check when you applied, then you will likely owe.

Here’s how it works: If you got a $ a week check, then you owe the government 10% of each unemployment check or about $60 per check.

So, how do you know how much you’ll owe? The Virginia Employment Commission will send you and the IRS a FORM G detailing the benefits you received - plus any federal tax withholdings elected.

Another question we see a lot: What if I owe taxes come April 15th? Cherry Dale, a financial coach with the Virginia Credit Union, says don’t wait to find out what you owe.

“Sometimes if we know we’re going to owe taxes at the end of the day, we wait until the last minute. However, waiting to the last minute to understanding what you completely owe can be devastating to you financially because you could end up with a major tax bill in April. So, my advice would be to at least figure out how much you’re going to owe come April 15 and make sure that you have money set aside in order to pay those taxes. Or if you can not, or you don’t have that cushion, figure out where that money is going to come from,” said Dale.

You can also prepare to ask for an extension.

Another question we received: What if you don’t owe money? What if you figure out you are going to get a tax refund once you file? What should be priority number one?

Dale says there should be two big priorities for that money - paying off debt or adding to your savings.

“Often we almost get caught in this almost deer in a headlight moment when we get some extra money, and we don’t know what to do with it. It just sits in our account. Well, you really want to think about planning with that money. And when you think about paying off debt or saving, you really should be doing both. It really depends on how much savings you already have. If you do not have any type of savings put aside, then start your emergency savings fund. This would be outside of a retirement fund. That would really be your first priority,” said Dale.

She says to look at that tax refund in percentages. Take 50% to pay off debt and 50% to put in savings.

If you have no plan, this is a great place to start. Remember, if you’re an early bird when it comes to filing your tax return, you’ll have to wait for a little longer this year before the IRS will accept your return. That’s not happening until Feb. 12 this year.
