If you believe that the change made to your tax return based on information sent to DOR by a third party such as the Lottery or the Department of Unemployment Assistance (formerly Division of Employment and Training, DET) , was made in error, you may appeal that change by filing an amended return. To be successful on your appeal, you should prepare the following documentation:
DUA - if there was an error in the amount of unemployment reported to DOR by DUA, you must attach a corrected Form 1099G issued by DUA or a letter from DUA verifying that amounts reported by them to DOR were incorrect. Please note that adjustments made for unemployment amounts paid back during the year may only be taken if the pay back occurs in the same tax year as the overpayment. For more information on the taxation of unemployment compensation, please see our online Tax Guide for DUA information.
Lottery - if there was an error in the amount reported to DOR by the Lottery Commission, you must submit a corrected Form 1099G issued by the Lottery Commission or a letter from the Commission verifying that the amounts reported by them to DOR were incorrect.
