HOW TO CORRECT A 1099 FORM
If you need to correct a 1099 form because the original has errors, you will need to re-file the same 1099 form.
The only difference is a simple “Corrected” checkbox at the very top of the 1099.
Checking this box signifies to the IRS and recipient that there is different information than on the original 1099.
This is the approach for correcting any type of 1099 form, from the popular 1099NEC and 1099MISC to obscure types of 1099 forms too.
You can print and mail the corrected 1099 forms yourself, or file them all online to save time!

This applies to ANY combination of 10 or more of ANY type of 1099 or W2 forms, except correction forms. Here is a great article with insights to the changes.
