E-file - Personal income tax information

Did you receive Excluded Workers Fund (EWF) benefits in 2021?

The Department of Labor (DOL) mailed you federal Form 1099-G with:

  • the amount of the EWF benefits you received in Box 6, and
  • the amount of New York State withholding in Box 11.

You must report EWF benefits when you file your federal and state income tax returns.

If you are e-filing your return, your software should prompt you to enter all the information from your Form 1099-G, including Box 6. If it does not, contact your software company for assistance.

If you are filing a paper return, report the amount in Box 6 as other income on:

  • line 8Z of Schedule 1 of the federal Form 1040, U.S. Individual Income Tax Return, and
  • line 16 of New York State Form IT-201, Resident Income Tax Return.

Visit DOL at 1099-G Tax Information for Excluded Workers Fund to learn more about the Form 1099-G for EWF they sent you.
