>the biggest problem Carl has is erroneous 1099's.

Does this actually happen? Do they correct it the same year? Can the second set be "un-issued" and how is it usually corrected?

This is happening right now, but I would like to assess whether Carl needs to hire an accountant or attorney.

Right, that's what I'm upset about. The bank was affiliated / a reseller of the DaisyInsurance products, provided all the paperwork for Carl, and in some ways, helped initiate the whole process.

What are the consequences of a second rollover?
How is it fixed?
Also, I would like to know if the bank is responsible in some way, especially if Carl ends up having to pay penalties, and what kind of penalties.
