UCE 20,400?

Why does my revised TT return list $20,400 on line 8 of schedule 1 when I was the only one to receive UC? I only received/entered ONE (1) 1099-G and  specifically indicated in the TT software that my name alone was on the 1099-G. I'm in CA.

CA is a community property state. under the federal tax laws, 1/2 of your UC is deemed earned by you and the other 1/2 by your spouse. each is entitled to an exclusion of up to $10,200. CA doesn't tax UC at all.

Yes ... this is one time that living in a community property state actually works in the taxpayer's favor.
