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!

E-filing Thresholds COULD Change Drastically!
In an effort to modernize the department and serve taxpayers better, the Department of Treasury has proposed major changes in requirements for businesses to e-file 1099 & W2 forms.
As part of the Taxpayer First Act, many businesses may no longer be able to submit paper forms. One of the main changes of the act is the lowering of the threshold of information returns in order to be required to e-file.
Currently, payers with 250+ of each type of 1099 forms are required to e-file. HOWEVER, the IRS is considering lower the e-filing threshold to 100 1099 & W2 forms for a payer. Stay tuned to ZBP Forms for the latest compliance information.
