How Do I Send a Corrected 1099 to the IRS?

Fill out a corrected form when you must send an amended 1099 to the IRS. Include a corrected copy with a new Form 1096 if you mail it to the government. There are only a few steps in the process. Put a checkmark in the “corrected” box at the top of your form to indicate that it is not the same form as before.


Keep in mind a couple of specific rules. Do not include a copy of your old form when you file any revised paper forms. You must use a separate Form 1096 to correct each type of return as well. Identify which type of error below best matches your reason for filing a corrected form:


Type 1 Errors – You reported the incorrect money amount(s), code, or checkbox. You submitted a return in error. Solution: Include the correct information on the amended form.


Type 2 Errors – You filed a form with a missing or incorrect Taxpayer Identification Number. The payee name on one of your forms was incorrect. Solution: Identify the incorrect return and then report the accurate information.
