HI! I filed for unemployment and wasn't accepted until I was rehired at my job, so I didn't use it or activate it. Do I still have to file as receiving unemployment?

If you did not actually receive any unemployment payments, then you do not report any unemployment on your tax return. When TurboTax asks if you received unemployment, answer No. If you did not receive any payments, it doesn't matter if your application for unemployment was accepted. What matters is whether you actually received any money.
