Where will I find my corrected 1099 tax documents?

We will upload the corrected Form 1099 tax document to your app, where you can identify it by looking for the word “corrected” in the file’s title or subtitle. If you don’t see this, you may need to update to the latest version of the app. It will also have a more recent date than your original tax document.

Please make sure that you’ve filed your taxes in accordance with this updated information. This may require re-filing your taxes.
