Tax time! DFAS reports an error in the Form 1099Rs mailed in early January

The Form 1099Rs retired service members use to file their taxes that were mailed out by DFAS in early January, but they were missing the last digit in the Payer’s Federal Identification Number.

DFAS mailed out corrected 1099s as of Feb. 1. With the backlog in the USPS system, you should be receiving them in the mail shortly.

If that doesn’t work for you, the fastest way to get your corrected 1099 is from the myPay website.

If someone you know doesn’t use the internet, they can call 800-321-1080, select option 1 for Self-Serve, select option 1 again, then enter your Social Security Number when prompted, and the 1099R should be in the mail within 7-10 business days to the address DFAS has on record.

If your address on file with DFAS is out of date and you are not a myPay user, you can get your 1099R sent to an updated address by submitting your request online at AskDFAS.
