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:
Internal Revenue Service
Information Returns Branch
230 Murall Drive, Mail Stop 4360
Kearneysville, WV 25430"

How do I get the Transmitter Control Code (TCC) if it was filed through Quickbooks?

Good day, NCHoya09.

 

You can request for a Transmitter Control Code (TCC) to the IRS. Please go to this link: https://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/f4419.pdf.

 

I'd also recommend contacting our Customer Care Support team so they can further assist you with this. 

Here's how:

  1. Click the Help icon at the top-right.
  2. Click the Contact Us link.
  3. Enter Transmitter Control Code (TCC) as your concern, then click Let's talk.
  4. Choose either Start messaging or Get a callback.

I called the IRS directly and can confirm that that is NOT the right thing to do.

 

The TCC is given to the company or Registered Agent who originally files the return, in this case Quickbooks/Intuit. See https://www.irs.gov/e-file-providers/become-an-authorized-e-file-provider

 

I spent an hour with a (based on very strong accent) foreign QuickBooks customer service rep and screen-shared my computer to explain it all. She finally said I should call the IRS. After another hour on hold, the IRS rep confirmed that I must obtain the TCC code from QuickBooks because they filed my return.. The IRS cannot provide it to me directly and told me to call Intuit. Rock... meet hard place. Billable hours spent with Intuit/IRS customer service reps: 3 hours

 

I am just going to write “unable to obtain from Intuit/QuickBooks" for that information and hope I get credit for making a good-faith effort. These are the sort of issues that rise up when companies get so large that customer service is outsourced to other countries, and you then have to try/fail to explain the US tax system.

We don't want you to experience this inconvenience. Please know that it's our top priority to help you with any concerns you have, @NCHoya09. And I'd like to make it up with you.

 

Getting a Transmitter Control Code (TCC) depends on how you file the form. If you trying to file the form outside QuickBook with Intuit's TCC, you must obtain your own TCC from the IRS.

 

However, If you're trying to file it electronically via QuickBooks, you can use the Intuit's TCC. And for you get it, you can contact our Customer Support Team again. I understand that you've already contacted them before but Intuit's TCC should be provided to you privately.

 

Here's how to reach them: 

 

  1. Sign in to your QuickBooks Online account.
  2. Click ? Help at the top-right corner.
  3. Select Contact Us to connect with a live support agent.                                                                                           1.PNG

If I filed the original returns through Intuit, don't I reference Intuit's TCC (Transmitter Control Code) ?

Hi, daylight0911.

 

As referenced by my peer above, if you file it electronically via QuickBooks, you can use the Intuit's TCC. To get it, you can contact our Customer Support Team.

 

All filers must obtain approval from the Internal Revenue Service, Technical Services Operation (TSO), and be assigned a Transmitter Control Code (TCC) before electronically filing.

 

Here's how to contact us:

 

  1. Sign in to your QuickBooks Online account.
  2. Click ? Help at the top-right corner.
