In the article titled “Comparison of some tests of fit for the Inverse Gaussian distribution” [1], there were a number of typographical and other errors. Except for the minor typographical error in below, all calculations reported appear to be correct.

In (2.1) + sign in the denominator should be omitted so that the denominator is 24(⋯)(⋯). Also a hat is missing on and the last should not be cubed. ThusIn (2.2) the first occurrence of 1+ should be 1–. ThusIn (2.5) and (2.6) s before and should both be deleted. ThusIn the definition of following (2.6) –253440 should be +253440.

In example (ii) the value of should be 0.0033.
