    I have been selfemployed for all my life in the family business. I inherited this business upon my fathers death in 1984. Business is a C corporation and is seasonal and consists of irrigation and landscaping installation. I have paid into unemployment all my life.
    We are a small family business with 3 employees including myself. We have no income during the Winter so I applied for benefits and was denied. I would like to know reasons for denial. Thanks
