If you have ever received anything that one would consider a "payment" from a government agency (i.e. state, local, etc.), you would then include a 1099-G FORM when filing you taxes. For example, if you have received unemployment benefits, tax credits for agriculture or even tax refunds for previous years tax returns, then you should fill out a 1099-G FORM.
