wrong income on 1099

My husband worked as an independant contractor with his brothere-in-law and he recieved a 1099 like he should have. But the amount that was reported on his 1099 is wrong and my husband has called him several times asking for coppies of the returned cheks that he recieved but he won't return his calls or send anything that is the correct amount he made. He kows that the amount that was reported is incorrect but not sure what the correct amount is. Can he report him to the IRS or what other options does he have? Time is running out and he wants to file his taxes. Thank you for your time.

Please refer to my answer that was provided to a similar question, except that in that case the company that issued an erroneous 1099-Misc went Defunct.

In your case, you need to mention that "You attempted to contact the employer to correct the 1099-Misc and that the employer was not being cooperative at all, to file an amended 1099-Misc report".

Further that you have all copies of the payments made to you and so, the adjustment you are making to the Gross 1099-Misc report is reasonable and valid.

But, please report the entire amount received followed by an item called "Adjustment to 1099-Misc". Also, indicate See Note 1) and attach this note to the tax return with my comments above.


Incorrect information on 1099
