Collecting Unemployment

by Diane Days
(Detroit, MI)

Hello,


My name is Diane and I live in Michigan. I had been working full time and I also had a face painting business that I would do on weekends. My position was eliminated in March of 2010. I filed for unemployment and continued face painting. I am now concerned about whether I will be asked to repay the unemployment? It is a sole proprietorship so I include everything on my joint return with my husband.

Unemployed Father as Dependent

by Katrina

If my father is unemployed, can I add my unemployed father as my dependent?

If your father is unemployed and you provide over half the cost of living for him, you may very well be able to claim your unemployed father as your dependent on your income tax return.

Please see the IRS Publication 17 for the additional requirements involved with being able to claim your parent as a dependent on your income tax return.

Unemployment

Do I have to pay income tax on unemployment? I worked until Sept. 1,2010 and the rest of the year I drew unemployment. I was thinking that we did not have to pay income tax on unemployment. Evedently I am mistaking reading other questions about unemployment, I see that other people have paid taxes on unemployment.

Unemployment and Severance Pay

I was recently laid off from my job. I am entitled to severance pay for one year. I was told by my former employer to file for unemployment benefits immediately.

My question is am I entitled to collect unemployment while collecting severance pay, or should I wait until the severance pay runs out.

Unemployment Taxes More Than Withholding

by Hannah
(Texas)

Hi there, I live in Texas and received unemployment in 2010. I had the standard 10% withheld but when entering into my taxes this year, the amount I owe increases several thousand dollars more. Is the 10% not enough to cover that income? Why do I owe so much more on the unemployment income that the 10% withheld? Thank you.
