I work full time at a job that takes out taxes from my check. However, for years, I've had my own part time counseling business. I did this service in order to compensate for the expenses or bills my other job did not. It is sole proprietorship. Recently, the state told me I cannot work the counseling business until I reapply under the new rules and they approve my application. I expect to be without this income for 30 to 90 days. This significantly reduces my hours that I need to work and is causing financial hardship. Forclosure on my house has been served due to lack of income from that business. Would I be eligible for unemployment? No taxes are taken out until income tax preparation for this business.
