I need to delete a filed 1099 and correct it

I filed a 1099 on the wrong person.  i need to delete the incorrect one and replace with the correct named person


Hi there, aggieddt

I’ll share some information about filing 1099 forms in QuickBooks Online Payroll (QBOP).

This time, QBOP doesn’t let you delete a filed 1099 form and replace it with the correct one. 

As an alternative, you’ll need to print a new paper form to correct a 1099. Here’s how:

  1. If you don’t have paper forms already, you can either order 1099s from us online or from IRS.
  2. Fill out the 1099-MISC form and be sure to select the Corrected checkbox.
  3. Mail the form to the IRS
  4. Mail the recipient copy to your contractor/vendor as soon as possible so that they can file their taxes.

For more information about 1099s, you can go through these helpful articles below:

You can also check out page 10 of the IRS publication for detailed instructions through this link: https://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/i1099gi.pdf. To see the error charts for filing corrected 1099 returns, you can refer to this IRS website: https://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/i1099gi.pdf#en_US_2018_publink1000286954.

That’ll help you stay compliant about correcting your 1099 forms, aggieddt. Feel free to add a comment below if you have other concerns. I’m always here to help. Have a great day!

People come to QuickBooks Learn & Support for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
