If you have reported incorrect information in the original 1099-NEC, you can file 1099c forms to correct them. 

You can correct the following:

  • Payer TIN & Name. You need to send a letter to the IRS with the necessary information along with your signature. We will guide you through the steps.
  • Recipient details and amounts reported earlier. Here, you need to provide the originally reported information along with the correct information. 

Here’s how you file a 1099-NEC correction:

  • Sign in to TaxBandits, click Start New Form >> Form 1099c.
  • Select the Tax year.
  • Choose 1099 correction type - recipient and payer detail are available.
