  • WA unemployment claim and self-employment Washington

    I am receiving unemployment benefits from a layoff at my last job. While I look for a new job, I have started up a sole member LLC (taxed as sole proprietor) and am selling homemade crafts here and there. Payments from customers go to the LLC's bank account. I don't have a salary and won't be drawing any distributions and at this point the expenses outweigh the sales so there's revenue but no net income.

    On the WA State weekly claim of benefits, it asks "Have you worked in self-employment". How should I answer this when the money goes to the company, not me, and the company spends more than it earns? If I say "Yes" what info does it ask for?

    Thanks for your help.
