If you found out you were doing something incorrectly in your job, that could cost you your job, what action would you take?
I found out I was processing things wrong in my job. The person who takes it a step farther and processes the items farther is working two positions and is behind in her work, so hasn't caught my mistakes, YET. Do I go to my boss, being proactive and say, "I know this is going to show up somewhere." Or do I just never do it again and hope I keep my job?

It is far better to admit your mistake NOW than have it found out and then they know you knew it was an error or worse they think you didn't CARE!! At least at this point, if they have not discovered your error, it should be relatively easy to rectify. Maybe you could offer to do the corrections on your own time?? They may not allow it, but at least you can offer--that would show me my employee is trying to do the right thing and be conscientious with her work and that she actually CARES about the job she is doing.
Maybe start out the conversation with "I THOUGHT I was doing it correctly, but I realize now I wasn't." Honesty is always the best policy...
