It is a better idea to get a corrected 1099-R. The information you provide must match the form. The IRS will scrutinize your return looking for discrepancies.

Was the entire annuity surrendered?

Is box 2b Taxable amount not determined marked on the Form 1099-R?

Is a taxable amount shown in box 2a that is different from the amount in box 1?
