Question about unemployment benefits and/ or taxes?

If the government already has all this info and is quick to pounce on TINY errors, such as a typo, why don't they just bill you or send a check? What is the purpose of putting everybody through these things and causing stress, wasting time and money, etc.

    They don't have all of the info. They only have some of it. They can't just bill you or send a check, because they don't know how much the bill or check should be, because they don't have all the info. They need you to give them the rest of the info so that they know how much it should be.

    Part of the reasons for asking for this information is verify it is not a fraud claim, you can thank people who steal others identities and file fraudulent claims.  Just double check your information the first time you fill it out
