Asked by Linda  |  Submitted February 01, 2014

The Virginia Employment Commission sent me a 1099-G Form for 2013 in which Box 3 & Box 2 equal the amount which they claim they paid me in 2013 in Box 1.

However, they never paid me a cent and, in fact Box 2 plus Box 3 is equal to Box 1, and NO payment was actually received by me, does this zero balance need to be entered on my 1040?

Linda, Thank you for the question. Sometimes these government forms can be so confusing. If I were preparing your 2013 Tax Return I would enter the information on the tax return. The Virginia Employment Commission sent it to you and because of that I would enter. I rather be safe than sorry.

Make sure you check with your tax preparer as you begin to prepare your taxes.
