How do I report unemployment if I didn't get a 1099-G?

If you received unemployment compensation from a union, private voluntary fund, or as a state employee you might not get a 1099-G. Here's how you enter the unemployment:

  1. Open your tax return in TurboTax online. (To do this, sign in to TurboTax and select Take me to my return.)
  2. Search for unemployment compensation and select the Jump to link.
  3. On the Did you receive unemployment or paid family leave benefits in 2018 screen, answer Yes.
  4. On the Did you receive a 1099-G screen, select No, I didn't receive a 1099-G.
  5. On the next screen, Let us know if any of these uncommon situations apply, select I received non-government unemployment benefits that weren't reported on a 1099-G and Continue.
  6. Follow the onscreen instructions to enter your unemployment.
