Q: Is a uniform allowance for an employee of a private company non-taxable?

Uniform allowance included in W-2 could be deducted only as an itemized deduction subject to 2% threshold. It would be best if the employer just buys the uniform for staff and doesn't include it in W-2, because by itemizing, staff loses some of the money, or some do not even itemize. good luck.

Jerry Lutkenhaus' answer
I don't practice in your state but I have practiced Social Security Disability in Virginia for 35 years. I can tell you Social Security will not reduce its benefits due to your receipt of unemployment compensation.
