Please check your entries for your unemployment compensation in the federal return.

  1. On the Enter your 1099-G info screen, make sure you have completely entered the information for the Payer and indicated that the state is NJ.  (See Screenshot #1, below.)
  2. On the screen, What's the total amount you received on your 1099-G? be sure to select NJ from the drop down box.  (Screenshot #2)
  3. On the next screen, Let's confirm the address listed on your 1099-G, enter the address shown on the 1099-G.  (Screenshot #3)

None of your NJ unemployment benefits should be included in your NJ taxable income.
