I keep getting an error saying I need to correct the Payer tin number on my 1099-G. I have double-checked and checked again but it keeps saying there is an error.

Usually you can delete the form 1099G from your return and re-enter the information manually to clear this error. 

 

You can delete the form in the interview topic or if using an online version follow these steps to "delete a form." 

  1. Click "Tax Tools" in the left hand menu
  2. Click "Tools"
  3. Click "Delete a Form"
  4. Find the 1099-G 
  5. "Delete"
  6. "Confirm Deletion"

 

If using a desktop version switch to the "Forms View" to delete the form 1099G.
