I was working, and while I was working someone used my name to get unemployment, I didn’t know until I got a 1099 from the unemployment dept. I reported it How do I fix?

How can I file without this interference from this breach?

Contact the unemployment authority and ask them how to block your account and SSN.

IRS says:
you should contact your UI division and they should issue to you a corrected 1099-G showing zero as soon as possible.
