Nothing in either linked article makes a distinction between regular UI and pandemic UI for self employed. Yes, it is true that in many if not most states, self employed tend to get less in state benefits, more frequently falling under the $100 threshold. But many self employed will still qualify, and many regular UI recipients will not. A lot depends on the state (and most states haven't even applied for the extra money anyways.)
Hi Sandyf. My W-2 wages do not reflect unreimbursed or reimbursed expenses depending on what you may describe them as. My company will pay for certain expenses where one does not have to worry about out of pocket i.e. an expense account that is paid for and accounted for by the company. There are those instances where expenses such as travel, hotels, meals, periodicals, tolls, mileage, etc are incurred by the employee by making their own reservations/laying out money while on company business. Employees will submit receipts and paper work for reimbursement and of course they are not deductable during tax time by the employee. This in my experience has always been a separate check/direct deposit. I have never received a W-2 where expenses were deducted as part of my paycheck. IMO, how much did you make? $1000 regardless of what my expenses were. Your expenses are claimed at tax time. Good luck to you.
