What Can I Correct On My 1099?

The IRS classifies correctable errors into two types (Type 1 or Type 2).

Type 1 errors include reporting the incorrect payment amount, codes, or realizing the return should not have been filed for the recipient.

Type 2 errors include a missing or incorrect payee Taxpayer Identification Number, incorrect name, or the original return filed using the wrong type of return.

You are required to file the 1096 form along with the corrected return, unless you are filing the correction electronically. It takes only few minutes to correct & file your 1099 forms with TaxBandits.

Correcting State Information on Your 1099

The state errors that can be corrected on Form 1099 are: State tax withheld, State/Payer’s state number, State income. If the state participates in the CF/SF program, there is the option of filing corrections through the IRS. However, this can be done ONLY when both federal and state reporting have been affected OR when only federal reporting is affected.
