How do I make multiple types of corrections to an e-filed 1099 form?

There are two different 1099 correction types that can be filed per corrected 1099 form; recipient information (wrong recipient TIN, name, and address) or wrong dollar amounts. The wrong recipient TIN, name, and address includes recipient name, address, city, state, zip code and social security number.  Wrong dollar amounts includes all dollar amount fields. Box 17 (State and Payers State Number) is also included in this classification.

Example: A 1099 form is filed with the wrong amount in Box 3 and the last name spelled incorrectly. To make both corrections will require two corrected 1099 forms. The first will correct the original 1099 and the second will correct the corrected 1099.

Note: It is our recommendation to make corrections to the recipient TIN, name, or address before correcting dollar amounts.
