Of the 2,362, more than 1,000 receiving unemployment benefits had a household adjusted gross income of $1.5 million in 2009.
More than 8,000 tax filers making $500,000 to $1,000,000 received unemployment benefit income in 2009 and more than 900,000 tax filers that made $100,000 to $500,000 received unemployment benefit income.
