Being unemployed does not necessarily give you immunity from taxes.
It might seem there's no income earned, so no tax to pay and no return to file. But the Virginia Society of Certified Public Accountants cautions that unemployment benefits are subject to federal tax, and -- depending where you live -- state taxes.
Other taxable income includes severance benefits, vacation or sick pay you got when you were laid off. So you likely still need to file a return, depending on your gross income, filing status and age.

An estimated 43 million people watched the Academy Awards. That gives the Oscars broadcast its biggest audience in a decade. And it's the most popular entertainment event on television since the ``Friends'' finale in 2004.
Selfie-gate? It isn't getting quite to that point. But some are raising questions about the backstory of Ellen DeGeneres' celebrity filled selfie from the Oscars on Sunday night. One of the biggest questions is her choice of camera and whether big-stakes product placement had anything to do with the choice. The ``shot seen around the world'' was fired off with a Samsung camera. And it so happens that Samsung was a major commercial sponsor of the Academy Awards telecast. The company also gave phones to student presenters and encouraged them to tweet and post on Instagram with them. Dozens of Samsung phones, tablets and TVs were used to make a digital photo display in the backstage green room. Meanwhile, when DeGeneres posted her own tweets from backstage, they were taken with an Apple iPhone which indicates that she uses it personally. ABC says Samsung didn't specifically pay for the use of its camera in the selfie segment and the product name wasn't used. But Samsung later issued a statement saying it was donating $3 million dollars $1.5 to two of DeGeneres' favorite charities

They're called bitcoins and they are supposed to be the new ``in'' thing when it comes to virtual currency.
