How to correct errors on your tax form

If your tax form has any inaccuracies, we can issue you a corrected form upon request. Some of the most common reasons for requesting a correction include:

  • An error on dividends or income paid
  • Incorrect name or address
  • You updated your National Insurance number

Carefully review your tax forms to ensure all the information is accurate. If you find an error, read on to learn how to work with us to get a corrected version. If you need a corrected form, you’ll generally be able to view it 1-2 weeks after the correction has been made.

Correcting your address or misspelt name

Keep in mind

Address changes and minor name changes generally don’t require a corrected Form 1042-S, such as a small misspelling or missing your middle initial.

To update your address with us, follow the steps in Update your address.

To update your legal name or correct the spelling, you need to send a request to us with the following information:

  • A photo of the legal name change document
  • An updated photo ID with your legal name
  • Well’ send you a form to sign to confirm the request

After we get a request with the required information, we’ll update your name in our system. We may also request additional information.

Correcting a National Insurance number

If the National Insurance number on your Internal Revenue Service (IRS) Form 1042-S is incorrect, you’ll need to provide a copy of an official document, such as a P45, P60, or Pay Slip, that contains your National Insurance number in order to update it. Contact our support team as soon as possible to update your National Insurance number. After you get a corrected tax form from us, you can file your taxes using the corrected form.

Where to get a corrected IRS Form 1042-S

During tax season, we’ll upload the corrected IRS Form 1042-S to your app 1-2 weeks after we’ve made a correction. The new version will include corrected in the title with a more recent date than your original Form 1042-S. Be sure you’re using the latest version of the app to view your corrected Form 1042-S.
