If you entered incorrect or outdated information for your year-end tax info, it can be corrected quickly with cooperation from your customer.


Most companies will file your Form 1099 (MISC or NEC) by the end of January for the previous year of tax filing (e.g., filing in January 2020 for the 2019 calendar year).

Your customer has until the end of February each year to file your Form 1099 with the IRS and, if needed, that deadline can be extended to the end of March for forms filed electronically

Making corrections

If you are aware of a needed correction, you may be able to notify the reporting company before the Form 1099 is sent to the IRS.

If your Form 1099 was already filed by your customer and received by the IRS, then the next step is to request that your customer files a corrected form.

☝️ Tip: the standard Forms 1099-MISC and 1099-NEC include a checkbox your customer can tick to indicate a form correction
