Do you need to select that you received unemployment if it was less than $10,200?

For unemployment reporting, you should have received a Form 1099G from your state.  From that form, report the amount shown as compensation, even if it's less than $10,200.

@Woodsy-Jim is correct. Yes, you have to include your unemployment even if it's less than $10,200. 

 

  • Many recipients of unemployment benefits are able to exclude up to $10,200 of their unemployment benefits for households with annual incomes less than $150,000. The expanded tax relief begins this year, starting for taxpayers filing returns after January 1, 2020.
