Have a Tax Question? Ask a Tax Expert
Hi, I'm happy to help, unless you meant this question for a specific expert. Please let me know. -Rick
Angela, I'm a CPA with 25 years experience based in NYC. In order to collect unemployment, you will be asked a series of questions on a weekly basis, including whether you have returned to work. Your DBA business would disqualify you from receiving unemployment because it counts as work.
Angela, thank you for this opportunity to answer your question. I kindly ask that you give me a good rating if you are happy with my service. I strive to maintain my 5 star rating. I will remain online for a while in case you have any follow on questions. Have a good day. -Rick
There is proposed legislation that would change my answer, but under current rules, the DBA business would interfere with benefits.
