If I received unemployment benefits from Kentucky while living in Washington state, do I have to file a Kentucky state tax return?

I never lived or spent time in Kentucky, I recieved unemployment benefits from Kentucky because my company is based in Kentucky.

No.  This is the typical way, it is handled; your home state taxes it, not the issuing state. Since, WA doesn't have a tax, you still don't pay KY.  This answer assumes that no KY was withheld from the payments.

No.  Since you received the benefits while living in WA, they would be taxable to WA, however since WA does not have income taxes,  you will not pay state taxes on your benefits.
