When to Issue a Corrected 1099

Issue a corrected 1099 form as soon as you notice that you made an error on one. The Internal Revenue Service generally prefers to receive amended 1099s within three years of your original filing date. Yet the IRS does not impose a hard deadline for filing amended 1099s. Only issue a corrected 1099 to the IRS after you already submitted your erroneous form. You can void forms under other circumstances. Do not send an amended 1099 form to the IRS if you only corrected local or state information. Keep in mind that filing sooner is better. The IRS will likely issue more severe penalties for purposeful negligence.
