An open letter to the U.S. Congress

Taxability of federal unemployment

15 so far! Let’s get to 25 signers!

The additional $600/week unemployment that was sent as federal unemployment along with the state unemployment did not have withholdings, even if the choice was marked. The state unemployment did have the 10% withholdings. If the federal unemployment is taxed by federal, as state unemployment is, millions will unexpectedly owe money on their tax returns. With the economy still not doing well and unemployment still high, these unexpected taxes cannot be afforded. Is there something that Congress is doing to address this?
