My checks state 1099 misc. and there were NO TAXES taken out .
On a 1099 there is no requirement to take out taxes unless the IRS requires backup withholding due to specific factors such as an invalid or missing Taxpayer ID number, or history of tax underpayment in the past. The 1099 worker is self-employed, and therefore responsible for making their own estimated quarterly tax payments.

This is pretty standard. There's many great benefits of working on a 1099. Best of luck.

If there were no UI taxes paid for you then perhaps you might not be eligible for a claim. However, check with the state anyway. Ultimately it's up to them to determine if you are eligible:
