●Michelle Singletary’s The Color of Money column in the June 9 Business section, about Americans’ financial literacy, indicated that she keeps a car for five years on average. It should have said that she keeps a car for 10 years on average.

●A June 7 A-section article about a $4.1 million conference held by the Internal Revenue Service in 2010 incorrectly referred to Jill Mirich as an employee of the Anaheim, Calif., Hilton. She is room service manager at the Anaheim Marriott.

●A May 25 A-section article about Dish Network incorrectly reported that Dish said SoftBank chief executive Masayoshi Son admitted to Justice Department officials that the company bribed Chinese officials for telecom contracts in China. Son is a former board member of a company that reached a settlement with the Justice Department on corruption charges. SoftBank said Son had no knowledge of the activities investigated by the department.
