Stimulus Package / Unemployment Benefits
Yesterday, provisions for Independent Contractors to be eligible for unemployment benefits during the shut down were made. The Texas Workforce Commission was not accepting phone calls yesterday, so I was unable to get more information. I do not believe that their online application has been completely updated to include these provision, so I would recommend applying next week after they get their website portal updated. If you file for benefits, please remember to not use Salon Meyerland as your employer, it will be declined. Instead file under your own name and/or business name as selfemployed/independent. I believe you will need your 2018 or 2019 tax return to prove your income or a 1099 from your credit card processor (Paypal, Intuit, Styleseat, Vagaro). I do not believe Cash App/Zelle type services provide 1099s. The first person that receives benefits for withdrawal online at the Texas Workforce Commission, please CALL ME so I can pass the information on to your co-tenants. REMEMBER: The provision was made just yesterday so it may take a little bit for TWC to give their online system the ability to but I would start looking Monday.
