I misspelled my contractor's name on 1099 MISC form. I filed electronically. IRS.gov says to file the corrected 1099 and form 1096. Anyone familiar with this issue?

Intuit doesn't support corrections for 1099-MISC as stated in the FAQs section of their article: https://quickbooks.intuit.com/community/Employees-and-payroll-taxes/Prepare-and-file-your-1099s-usin...

 

It hyperlinks to the General Instructions for Centain Information Returns which includes 1099-MISC. In Section F of that instruction, there is a sub-section for reporting incorrect tax payer's name. And I quote:

 

"How to report incorrect payer name and/or TIN. If a
payer discovers an error in reporting the payer (not
recipient) name and/or TIN, write a letter containing the
following information.
1. Name and address of the payer.
2. Type of error (including the incorrect payer
name/TIN that was reported).
3. Tax year.
4. Payer TIN.
5. Transmitter Control Code (TCC).
6. Type of return.
7. Number of payees.
8. Filing method (paper or electronic).
9. Was federal income tax withheld?
Send the letter to:
