How to correct errors on your tax form
If your tax form has any inaccuracies, we’ll issue you a corrected form. Some of the most common reasons for getting a correction include:
Carefully review your tax forms to ensure all the information is accurate. If you find an error, read on to learn what you need to do. If you need a corrected form, you’ll generally be able to view it 1-2 weeks after the correction has been made.
Address changes and minor name changes generally don’t require a corrected Form 1099, such as a small misspelling or missing your middle initial. For minor changes, simply file your taxes with your correct address and spelling of your name with your existing Form 1099.
To update your address with us, follow the steps in Update your mailing address.
To update your legal name or correct a major misspelling, you need to send a request to us with the following information:
After we get a request with the required information, we’ll update your name in our system.
If you believe there’s a discrepancy on your Form 1099, send a request to us with a screenshot of the error and a screenshot showing the correct trade from one of the following:
After you submit the request, we’ll review the trade. If there’s an error, we’ll provide a correction and send you a corrected Form 1099. If there’s no error, we’ll notify you about it.
If the social security number on your Form 1099 is incorrect, you’ll need to provide a copy of your social security card in order to update it. Contact our support team as soon as possible to update your social security number. After you get a corrected tax form 1099 from us, you can file your taxes using the corrected form.
During tax season, we’ll upload the corrected Form 1099 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 1099. Be sure you’re using the latest version of the app to view your corrected Form 1099.
Make sure to use the corrected Form 1099 when filing your taxes. If you’ve already filed your taxes with the old document, you may need to file them again with the corrected form.
