02 Feb Kansas Dept. of Labor guidance for fraudulent, disputable, 1099-G forms
Kansas Dept. of Labor has reported 1099-G forms have been mailed to all claimants who received unemployment benefits in 2020.
If you received a 1099-G form for a claim that you did not receive payment for due to identity theft, you can fill out a request on the KDOL Self-Service Portal under “1099 Protest/Dispute”, making sure to check the box for “I want to dispute my 1099” and upload an Unsworn Declaration to declare you did not receive the benefits that were stated on your 1099-G form issued from the Kansas Department of Labor.
You can also send a written dispute with your full name and last 4 digits of your social security number to the Kansas Department of Labor at the following address:
Fraudulent 1099 Inquiry
Kansas Department of Labor
401 SW Topeka Blvd.
Topeka, KS 66603-3182
Make sure to include the reason of identity theft in your written dispute and a copy of a completed Unsworn Declaration form. Additionally, if you have not so already, go to www.dol.ks.gov/fraud to submit a report to our Fraud Investigation team. For more information on reporting fraud, see the Unemployment Fraud FAQ page.
Kansas Dept. of Labor also posted this guidance on Monday, Feb. 1, 2021 on its Facebook page.
If you have received a 1099-G form in the mail, make sure the following information is correct:
– KDOL’s address
– KDOL’s TIN
– Total unemployment benefit amount
– Total federal and state taxes withheld, if opted in
If any information on your 1099-G form is incorrect, report it to KDOL at https://uiassistance.getkansasbenefits.gov/ by selecting “Dispute my 1099”.
If you have received a 1099-G Tax Form and you did NOT receive unemployment benefits in the year 2020, you may be a victim of identity theft. Report this fraud to KDOL at https://uiassistance.getkansasbenefits.gov/ by selecting “Dispute my 1099” and make sure to include a copy of the Unsworn Declaration (found here: https://www.dol.ks.gov/…/ui…/1099-g-forms/k-frd-100.pdf).
Additionally, if you have not done so already, go to www.ReportFraud.ks.gov to submit a report to our Fraud Investigation team. More information about 1099-G Tax Forms can be found online, https://www.dol.ks.gov/ui-faqs/1099g-forms.
