1099-NEC correction guidance

If a contractor’s 1099-NEC looks incorrect, you can take early action in Gusto to help update the form (while still a draft) or speed up the time to getting a corrected 1099 once it's final. Drafts 1099s update every 24 to 48 hours and there is no additional fee for Gusto to correct a 1099-NEC.

If your issue is not listed below, contact us from the Help section of your account to detail what needs correcting (or the Priority support section for customers with Priority support).


Corrections to Form 1096 (cover page for Form 1099) are not supported at this time.

Select the 1099 issue from the dropdowns below to get instructions for what to do next.
