Make a mistake on a 1099-MISC that has already been filed? Not to worry! We can help you file corrections.

Take a look at the common errors below to identify which type of error was made, and how to correct.  You can file corrections through us even if you filed in the past or with another company.

There are 2 Types of common errors that can be corrected with Wagefiling. First, you need to determine if you have a Type 1 or Type 2 correction before starting.

  • Wrong Money Amount Entered – Type 1 Error
  • Wrong Tax ID entered – Type 2 Error
  • Sent a 1099-MISC to his company, but should have been to him individually, or vice-versa – Type 2
  • Sent a 1099-MISC but should have not done so – Type 1

Once you know what type of error you need to correct, follow the instructions below – and be sure to call us if you have any questions!

IMPORTANT! Most important when you begin to do a correction is you have to re-enter your information. DO NOT Bring Files Forward, this will effect any other filings associated.  If you have questions always feel free to contact us
