Paid Family Leave (PFL) benefits are considered a type of unemployment compensation and are taxable.

The amount reported in the 2018 Benefits Repaid box of Table A and/or Table B is based on payments received and processed between January 1 and December 31 of the tax year.

The repayment of penalties (such as cash applied to penalties before basic overpayment) and other costs are not considered to be the repayment of benefit overpayments, and are not reported on Form 1099G.

Note: Only cash repayments are reported on Form 1099G. Benefits taken from your claim to repay an overpayment are not cash repayments, and are not included in this box.
