TaxBandits lets you file 1099 corrections for the 1099s filed with us and other service providers. Using TaxBandits, you can correct the following:

  • Payer Name & EIN
  • Recipient Name & SSN/EIN
  • Federal and State Amount Correction
  • 1099s filed that should not have been filed (Void)

At TaxBandits, we support the 1099 corrections for rectifying all the errors above. You can either manually correct or use bulk upload. If the count of the 1099s to be corrected is high, use the bulk upload feature provided by TaxBandits. This applies to all 1099 series, including 1099-NEC, 1099-MISC, 1099-DIV, and 1099-INT.

Correct Payer Name & EIN

For correcting Payer Name and TIN in 1099s, you have to send a letter to the IRS with the corrected information and signature. TaxBandits lets you prepare a letter for the IRS. Enter the details provided in the original return along with corrected values, download the letter and mail it to the IRS.

After correcting the payer details, you don’t have to issue the corrected 1099s to the recipients.

Correct Recipient Name and SSN

When you correct the 1099s filed with TaxBandits, we will pull up the originally reported details. You only need to enter the correct details. For correcting the 1099s filed with other service providers, provide both the originally reported and correct details.

If the originally reported 1099 has an Account Number, enter it while correcting the 1099s.
