Fixing error, State mails 180,000 1099s

The Vermont Department of Labor (VDOL) has mailed all-new 1099-G forms to 180,000 recipients, with the final batch in the mail today, according to a DOL statement

The State began delivering the 180,000 pieces of mail to the U.S. Postal Service in Essex beginning Friday afternoon, with the last batch being delivered on today. Claimants can expect to receive their 1099-G forms over the course of next week. 

The mailing was made necessary when thousands of 1099-G’s were mistakenly mailed to the wrong addresses in January. 

“I am pleased to announce  that most claimants will be receiving their 1099s over the course of the next week,” said Commissioner Michael Harrington, “and I thank Vermonters for their patience as teams from across state government worked to get these out the door as quickly as possible.”

Claimants will receive a 1099-G form for each program they collected benefits from during the 2020 calendar year. This means many should expect multiple 1099-G forms if they collected benefits for most of the year, especially during the spring, summer and fall, and if their unemployment was a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
