UC-1099G for unemployment benefits I never received.?
So I applied for the pandemic unemployment and got accepted. However, even though I filled out the bi-weekly claims, I never got a single penny from them (they said it was being sent, but it never did). Now, I got a tax form from them for over $5,500 they say I received. I tried contacting them, but all I get is the busy tone. I am freaking out and idk what to do about it. Do I have to file it, or is there a way I can dispute it?

You report the unemployment benefits as income and pay tax on it.

It seems like finding the $5,500 should be a higher priority than figuring out the tax consequences. Wait to file your tax return until you get the unemployment issue resolved (file an extension if it drags past April).

You have to file it.
What state are you in? Most states it goes to a separate debit card based bank account, not your regular bank account.
