Are my unemployment benefits taxable?

Yes, the Tax Reform Act of 1986 mandated that all unemployment insurance benefits are taxable. Unemployment benefits are considered regular income for tax purposes, and so are subject to both federal and state income taxes. The 1099-G form assists in reporting the income on your tax forms.
