Unemployment Compensation Recipients can get tax documents online

Montgomery, Alabama – MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - Alabamians who have received
unemployment compensation benefits during the past year can now
visit the Web site of the state Department of Industrial Relations
to get the documentation needed for filing federal income tax
returns.
State Industrial Relations Director Tom Surtees said the Web
site (http://www.dir.alabama.gov) should provide more convenient
access and make filing a tax return a little easier.
The tax forms are password protected and must be accessed with a
Social Security number. Surtees said those without Internet access
will have their forms mailed to them by Jan. 31.
