I'd always assumed that Forms 1099 are prepared by people (OK, computers, but computers that have been programmed by people) who know what they're doing and are committed to accuracy.

Well, you know what they say about assumptions. This is neither the first nor the last 1099 with a problem.

If you properly prepared the return you reduced your chance of an IRS inquiry. If there is an inquiry, once again I will be vindicated for my strong advice from the git-go that people should not rely on 1099's, but on their own meticulous records.
