Tax information

Note: The information on this page concerns only benefits paid in 2020. The date the Department of Consumer and Business Services issued the check is the date on which the 1099-G is based. For checks with a 2021 date, you will receive a Form 1099-G in January 2022.

For tax questions or concerns, consult with a tax professional, the Oregon Department of Revenue, or the IRS.

Form 1099-G

The funds you receive from the COVID-19 Temporary Paid Leave Program are taxable. For payments dated in 2020, we will send a Form 1099-G - no later than Jan. 31, 2021 - to the mailing address you provided on your application.

Request a 1099-G

If you have not received a 1099-G by Feb. 15, 2021, fill out this form.

What is a 1099-G?

A 1099-G is a record of benefits received from a governmental entity. One copy is sent to the person who received the money, one copy is sent to the state’s department of revenue, and one copy is sent to the IRS. Note: If you received money from the COVID-19 Temporary Paid Leave Program, you should receive a 1099-G and need it to file your taxes.

Why did I receive a 1099-G?

You received a 1099-G because you received a check from the COVID-19 Temporary Paid Leave Program. The 1099-G is a record of these benefits you received that you need to file your taxes.

I did not get my check until 2021. Why am I getting at 1099-G for 2020?

The date the Department of Consumer and Business Services issued the check is the date on which the 1099-G is based. For example, if the check was issued on Dec. 29, 2020, but you did not receive it until Jan. 4, 2021, it still falls under the 2020 tax year.

What if I don’t remember receiving a check from this program?

Review your banking records for a check from the Department of Consumer and Business Services. The program started Sept. 16, 2020, so you would not have received a check before that date. If you cannot find a record of receiving a check, call the COVID-19 Temporary Paid Leave Program hotline at 833-685-0850 (toll-free).

What if I cannot find my 1099-G?

You can request a new 1099-G by filling out this form.

What if I need a corrected 1099-G?

Note: You may need a corrected 1099-G if the amount, payee name, Individual Tax Identification Number (ITIN), or tax identification number (TIN) is incorrect. Your TIN is usually the last four digits of your Social Security number.

You can request a corrected 1099-G by filling out this form.

What if I have not cashed my check and want to send it back?

You still need to claim the amount on the 1099-G for 2020. In January 2022, you will get a corrected 1099-G for your 2021 taxes.

What if I sent a personal check back to the program in 2020 for part of the benefit I received?

You can request a corrected 1099-G by filling out this form.

When will updated 1099-G forms be sent?

Corrected 1099-G forms will be sent out on Feb 25, March 11, March 25, and March 30, 2021.
