Tax on Unemployment Income

Unemployment compensation benefits are fully taxable. You can have 10% of your unemployment payment withheld to help pay your federal taxes. You can also withhold state income taxes.

Withholding is voluntary. It eliminates the need to make estimated tax payments. If you want taxes withheld, file a Form W-4V: Voluntary Withholding Request.
