Report Fraudulent 1099-G

DLT is making every effort to ensure that victims of confirmed UI fraud will not receive a 1099-G form for unemployment benefits paid on a fraudulent claim.

If you receive Form 1099-G from the Rhode Island Department of Labor and Training for unemployment benefits you did not file for or receive you will not be held responsible for paying taxes on benefits that were fraudulently received using your identity.

Taxpayers do not need to file a Form 14039, Identity Theft Affidavit, with the IRS regarding an incorrect Form 1099-G. The identity theft affidavit should be filed only if the taxpayer’s e-filed return is rejected because a return using the same Social Security number already has been filed. Additional guidance from the IRS is available here.
