TaxBandits supports 1099 corrections for 1099s filed with us. You can correct the following errors by filing a 1099 correction:
- Payer Name & EIN
- Recipient Name & SSN/EIN
- Federal and State Amount Correction
- 1099s filed that should not have been filed (Void)
You can enter your corrections either manually or in bulk. If you need to correct multiple 1099s, we recommend that you use the bulk upload feature. This applies to all 1099 series forms, including 1099-NEC, 1099-MISC, 1099-DIV, and 1099-INT.
Correct Payer Name & EIN
If you filed the original 1099 with TaxBandits, the form details are already available in your account, simply update the corrected amounts.
If the original 1099 had an Account Number, it must be entered on the corrected form.

Correct Federal and State Amount Details
You only need the correct details to correct 1099s filed with TaxBandits. Make sure to enter the Account Number if the initially reported 1099 has one.
Please note that the states do not support the e-filing of correction form. However, you can complete the order, print the forms and mail copies to the respective state agencies.

When you submit a void return, all the amount fields will be marked with zeros, and the IRS will disregard your previous return without processing it.
