After the IRS accepts your 1099-NEC and you want to correct the information reported earlier, file a correction form in TaxBandits. Your original 1099-NEC could have been filed with other service providers or with TaxBandits

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
  • Go to Home >> Start New Form.
  • Click 1099 Corrections and choose Tax Year. To correct the amounts paid as non-employee compensation for years 2019 and earlier, you need to file 1099-MISC corrections.
