Unemployment insurance recipients can choose to have both federal and state income taxes withheld from benefits.
Due to a change in Indiana law, beginning Wednesday, July 30, 2014, Hoosier unemployment insurance recipients who have chosen to have federal income taxes withheld from their weekly unemployment benefits will also have state income taxes withheld. New recipients can also choose to have state and federal income taxes withheld from their weekly benefits when they are filing their initial claim for benefits in Uplink, Indiana’s online filing system.

Requirement to Receive Unemployment Insurance Benefits
Hoosiers receiving unemployment insurance benefits must visit their local WorkOne for a review of their work search records and an orientation to WorkOne services after their 4th week of benefits. You are also required by law to keep records of your 3 weekly work searches and be able to show a record of work searches when requested. If a record of work searches cannot be readily verified at the in-person visit, weekly benefits could be withheld. Anyone who fails to comply risks losing their unemployment insurance benefits.
