Unemployment Compensation Tax Forms Are Now Available Online
MONTGOMERY - Alabamians who received unemployment compensation benefits in 2019 can now view and download their form 1099-G online at
The Form 1099-G details how much unemployment compensation claimants received during the calendar year as well as information about taxes withheld from unemployment benefits. This information must be reported each year.
The forms are also available for years 2010-2018.
“This convenient access to important tax forms is available to all Alabamians who received unemployment compensation benefits,” said Labor Secretary Fitzgerald Washington. “Claimants should note that if they access their form online, no forms will be mailed to them, so they should print them for their records.”

These forms are password protected and must be accessed with a claimant’s Social Security number.

A printed form will also be mailed to the address of record on Jan. 31, 2020. Updates to addresses can be made at:
