I have a question about unemployment compensation. I assume that it is somewhat similar from state to state, although I know that there are some differences. I don't know if anyone has had any experience with this, but I thought I'd give it a shot.
Here is my question, or rather the situation... When DH was working for the church, we basically had to file our taxes as if he were self employed, because the church was a "Non-profit organization". Since most of what the church gave him was designated as "housing allowance" we did not pay taxes on that part, because it was exempt. But the rest of it we did pay taxes on. Anyhow. Since the church closed, he is now unemployed, and of course, he's had a horrid time finding a job.
He was assuming that since he was considered self-employed for tax purposes, that he's not eligible for any kind of unemployment. But I was reading some information on the unemployment website, and now I'm thoroughly confused. Because it says absolutely NOTHING about who's eligible and who's not. I've talked to a couple of people who say that he would be eligible, but most people just
When he lost his job 3 1/2 years ago, he applied, but he got a job a week later, so we never followed through with it, so I'm not sure what the process will require. Does anyone have any clue about this?
