You did not RECEIVE the money in 2020.   It does not go on a 2020 tax return.   You will enter it on your 2021 tax return, since that is when the money was received.

UC benefits are taxable in the year received.

So since I the money was recieved in 2021 it is supposed to go on this year's return? Even though it was back dated pay from October of last year?
