Type 1 and Type 2 as defined by the IRS. Let’s determine what type of correction you need to file.
Type 1 errors are straight forward. Usually, these errors include the wrong money amount being entered or money being reported that should hot have been reported.
To correct this type of error only requires one form or entry into Wagefiling. It’s important to always create a new
file, enter the correct data, whether that is an adjusted amount or a $0.00 and put an X in the correction box. Pay
for the file, print it out and get it to the recipient – we take care of the rest.
Type 2 errors get a little more complicated, but they usually involve a wrong name or TIN (EIN or SSN) but can also
include the wrong amount.
To correct this type of error you must create 2 entries in Wagefiling. Again, create a new file and enter the wrong
information that was originally reported, put a zero ($0.00) in the money box and put an X in the correction box-this “unfiles” the wrong information. Then create a new entry with all the right information. Pay for the file, print out the form and get it to the recipient – we take care of the rest.
