I think my 1099-MISC is incorrect? What do I do?

If you think your 1099-Misc is incorrect, you should contact the payor to make the corrections. But if you and the payor disagree over the correct amount, the IRS can’t help settle your dispute.

Your best bet is to always keep thorough, detailed records of payment from all your income sources. Then, when you file your taxes, you can enter the accurate amount and provide an explanation for the differences.
