NYS Treatment of Unemployment
On April 8, 2021, New York State announced that unemployment benefits that are excluded from federal gross income must be added back to income for the purpose of the New York personal income tax.
New York has updated the instructions for Form IT-558, New York State Adjustments due to Decoupling from the IRC, to include a new code for this add-back. The adjustment code is A-011.
The revised instructions are available at: https://www.tax.ny.gov/forms/income_up_to_date_info.htm#ui
