1042-S Software: Amended Form 1042-S

Amendments take time.  We can electronically file amendments of Form 1042-S on your behalf for current or prior years.  Please contact our sales office at (480) 460-9311 for more information and to order this service.

Here is what we would need:

  1. The record you want to correct along with the Unique Form Identifier that was used to identify that record. The Unique Form Identifier is a 10-digit number that withholding agents assigned to each Form 1042-S filed starting in tax year 2017.  We need that 10-digit number along with how many other times you have successfully filed an amendment to this specific record.  If this is the first time you have filed an amendment to a specific 1042-S form, then the amendment number would be 1.

    What happens if you need to file an amendment to a Form 1042-S filed in tax year 2016 or earlier when the Unique Form Identifier never existed?  In this case, you would generate and assign a random 10-digit Unique Form Identifier now to an old 1042-S form that was filed.

  2. What are you trying to correct or amend?  There are different types of corrections.A 1-step correction is when you are amending a money amount, a code of some sort (such as the income, exemption or status codes), a withholding agent address or if you are trying to a void the original transaction.

    A 2-step correction is when you are trying to correct a TIN or a recipient name or a recipient address.  Here, the 1st step is the original incorrect TIN/name that you used and the money amounts are set to 0.  This void the original transaction.  The 2nd step has the correct name/TIN and correct money amounts and its identified as an Amendment.

Amendments are filed using the most current form, layout and codes.
