The IRS says I received unemployment but I was employed and never received any payment.?

I received a letter from the IRS stating that I received unemployment payments and that I owed taxes on them from 2015. I was employed for the entirety of 2015 and never received such payments. After disagreeing with the charges, the IRS has now sent me a

Answers:

Someone applied for and received unemployment using your SSN. IRS should have sent you a statement that shows the amount of unemployment and what state paid it. Go to your unemployment office with it and ask them to track it down. Alternatively, if you had the same employer all year get a letter from there stating you worked all year.

The IRS already has obtained legitimate evidence from the unemployment office. They would not be making the claim without it. Someone got the benefits using your identity. Now, the only thing left to do is to show that you were not that person.

Someone used your name/social to claim benefits. The U/E office sends a form such as a W2 to the IRS.

The IRS has already been told by your state that you collected UI benefits. They got a copy of the Form 1099-G that the state generated.

This may be a case of identity theft. You will need to contact the state unemployment office and find out what is going on. Tell them that you never received benefits and ask them to investigate the matter.

You should also ask the IRS for the information from the 1099-G, including full name, SSN and address. This may be on an earnings transcript for tax year 2015.

It sounds like someone has stolen your social security number and received the benefits without your knowledge ! ( Identity theft )

They have a document (1099G) that says you did. You have to contact the unemployment office in order to see the documents on file. The IRS is not allowed to request backup documentation, nor do they have time to. Even if they were, you'd still have to prove that the documents were wrong.

I'm going to agree with Wayne Z. The state sent the IRS a F-1099-G with your social security number, indicating unemployment payments.

Chances are that somebody else filed for unemployment, and accidentally put down the wrong SSN, or somebody made a typo, and your number got listed. Contact the state unemployment office (Department of Labor, most likely) and get a copy. It will probably have your number, but somebody else's name and address.

At some point the IRS will just start garnishing your wages with fines included. It could have been a typo or someone may have stolen your identity. The the IRS doesn't need to and won't call anyone to help you out. They obviously have some type of evidence otherwise they wouldn't be sending you letters. Call the unemployment office and see what they have on record for you. It's your responsibility to clean up this mess and you may even have to hire an attorney. Sometimes bad stuff happens for no reason, but that doesn't mean you have a right to ignore it.

Your state must have sent them a 1099G showing that you received Unemployment Compensation.

Your first step is to contact the Unemployment office in your state and see what they are showing for records from 2015.

The IRS is not fair but that is the way it is.
