Whether you filed the original 1099s with us or with other service providers, you can correct the recipient name and/or TIN in TaxBandits. If you had filed 1099s elsewhere, you will need the originally reported details for the correction. 

Here's how you correct the recipient TIN and/or name reported in 1099. The procedure is the same for 1099-MISC, 1099-DIV, and 1099-INT.

  1. Sign in to TaxBandits, start a new 1099 Correction form. 
  2. Select the Tax year and proceed.
