Character error 

When he renders his judgment in the climactic sequence at the end of the film, Jugde Harper mentions that the $1 bill on which he found the words "In God We Trust" was issued by the Treasury of the United States. In fact, current U.S. banknotes are issued by the Federal Reserve Banks, not the Treasury. (Note that this error does not apply to the original 1947 film of which this is a remake: At that time, the U.S. Treasury still issued a form of banknotes called silver certificates.)

Factual errors

When Santa Claus tells the little girl his name in other countries, he says that in Holland his name is "Sinterklaas", however that is the name of another December holiday figure. In Holland, Santa Claus is referred to as "De Kerstman". "De Kerstman" and "Sinterklaas" act and dress differently, and have their own separate holiday.

In the list of 'We believe' is Ironworkers Local 542 - there is no such branch in New York state. The other union reference (Teamsters Local 237) is correct.

Shortly after Kris Kringle is acquitted, the camera cuts to an aerial view of Central Park which is resplendent in green. But this is supposed to be Christmas Eve when all the trees should be bare.
