New information has been released for Hoosier taxpayers who received unemployment compensation in 2020 and have already filed their state income tax returns.
Those who used a tax preparation software product, online services, or paid a tax professional to prepare their tax return need to check for information from their software preparer or provider about updates and how the required add-back of unemployment income that was excluded from their federal adjusted gross income was handled.
Many tax preparation software products were updated to perform the appropriate add-back of unemployment income.
In cases where the add-back of this Indiana taxable income was not accommodated, DOR will automatically perform the following review, without requiring any additional action by Indiana taxpayers:
- Review tax returns to determine the taxable amount of unemployment compensation for Indiana;
- Make any necessary corrections to those returns;
- If any additional amount is due, issue a bill for that amount in June; and
- Waive any potential penalty associated with unemployment income adjustment if the bill is paid in full in a timely manner.
