Make a mistake on a form 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 common error types – Type 1 and Type 2 – as defined by the IRS. First, let’s determine what type of correction you need to file.
Type 1 errors are fairly straightforward. Usually, these errors include the wrong money amount being entered or money being reported that should not have been reported.
Type 2 errors can get a little more complicated, but they are usually a wrong SSN/EIN or incorrect company name. This error type can also include the wrong amount reported.
