I'm not sure whether I should ask for the compensation that Tommy never paid to me or if I should ask them to correct the 1099.

Why not both?

If they didn't pay you $2,000 in 2008 (I assume that's the year we're talking about), the 1099 is wrong and should be corrected. Period. End of discussion.

If they owe you $2,000 they should pay you. It will be income to you in the year they do so.
