NYer's Will Have To Pay State Taxes On Unemployment Benefits


Albany, N.Y. - If you received unemployement payments last year...you wil have to pay state income taxes on them.

The American Rescue Plan approved by Congress, allowed exemptions to paying Federal taxes, but it’s up to states to decide whether to adopt the same exemption for state taxes.

New York lawmakers had a chance to do so in the 2022 state budget approved last night, but they didn't.
