How to File for an Additional 1099 after 1096 Is Sent In?
The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) requires that taxpayers file Form 1099 information returns to report certain payments made to other U.S. taxpayers.
Form 1096, Annual Summary and Transmittal of U.S. Information Returns, is filed with the IRS with all Forms 1099 and is used to summarize information on the Form 1099s. Occasionally, after remitting Form 1096 to the IRS, a taxpayer may determine that a payee was omitted when completing Form 1099s and it is necessary to report that additional payee to the IRS.
Complete the respective Form 1099 for the additional payee in the same manner as the previous Form 1099s. When filing a Form 1099 for an additional payee, you should not check the "corrected" box of Form 1099. The "corrected" box should only be checked if information initially filed on a form is incorrect.
E-Filing Additional Forms
If you need to e-file additional forms after e-filing an annual 1096 package, you must create and e-file those forms. You cannot modify the original filing.
When the additional 1099 information is transmitted, the 1096 information for the additional forms is included, and you do not need to submit an amendment for Form 1096.
