Didn’t withhold – how to correct?

This is my first time accepting UI, so I have had some difficulties with the process…when I first certified, I did not realize that the withholding they ask you to opt into was mandatory. I was under the impression it was some kind of extra withholding, like what you do on a W-2.

For my most recent check I have been opting in for the withholding, but I am not sure how to correct that I did not withhold on previous checks. I don’t want to be penalized by the IRS for this. Did anyone make this mistake and know how to fix?

    U can’t fix it. Basically, the withholding is paying federal taxes up front or may at later. State taxes don’t apply to ui benefits. I wouldn’t worry about it. If u start withholding now u should be ok
