You may contact the IRS at(NNN) NNN-NNNNand tell them you have received an invalid 1099 form. They will send form 4598 to the employer requesting that the form be corrected. This of course does not guarantee that the firm will comply, but this should be your first step. The IRS will send you a copy of the form 4598 that they send to the company.
If the firm does not void the form, when you file your tax return you will need to attach a statement explaining why you excluded this 1099 from reporting on your return. You should also include a copy of the 4598 form to show the IRS that you requested a correction. Once your return is received, the IRS will continue to correspond with the company in an effort to obtain supporting evidence of whether or not the 1099 was issued legitimately. If the company cannot validate the amount they reported to you as income, then you should not have to pay tax on this amount.
