Form 1099 Corrections

Any errors found on an accepted Form 1099 return need to be corrected immediately. This can be done by filing a Form 1099 Correction with TaxBandits. When filing a correction, only file the returns that need to be corrected. Filing your original return again will negate the purpose and be rejected.

How to correct 1099 forms

There are two types of errors that can be corrected on Form 1099:

Type 1 error includes reporting the incorrect payments, codes, or when you realized the return should not have been filed for the recipient.

Type 2 error includes missing or incorrect payee Taxpayer Identification Number, incorrect name, or the Original return filed using the wrong type of return.

You can e-file 1099 Correction Forms for Type 1 or Type 2 errors whether you filed originally with TaxBandits or with other service providers!

How to Correct Payer Information on an Accepted 1099 Form

  • Name and address of payer
  • Type of error (include the incorrect payer name/TIN that was reported)
  • Tax year
  • Correct payer TIN

How to correct state information on your Form 1099

The following state information errors can be corrected on Form 1099:

  • State tax withheld
  • State/Payer’s state number
  • State income

The state filing corrections can be filed to the IRS through CF/SF program. However, this can be done ONLY when both federal and state reporting have been affected for correction OR only when federal reporting is affected.

Errors which apply ONLY to a STATE FILING requirement should be sent directly to the state, even if the state comes under CF/SF program.

Also, the filers should send the 1099 corrected forms DIRECTLY to the state which is NOT a part of CF/SF program.
