They didn’t know it was coming and had no way of claiming it.

But from the “doesn’t that stink” file, why couldn’t Congress come up with this exemption last year?
USA Today says that under the latest stimulus package, you will not be taxed on the first $10,000 of unemployment pay in 2020. The good: If you received unemployment benefits, you probably have a bigger tax refund coming your way.
That could mean an additional $2-5,000 back to your wallet, depending on your tax bracket. Were you an early filer? That’s good — but also bad.
