Subject:  Do I owe a 1099 for an LLC? Date:  1/27/2013  8:59 AM

I'm finally getting ready to do DH's 1099's for the business, and have a question. I know that I do not need to do 1099's for businesses that are incorporated, but I've got one that is an LLC. In reading the instructions for the 1099, it talks about a single-member LLC, but this is a landscaping company that has employees and is structured as an LLC. Do I treat this more like it is incorporated and not need a 1099, or do I send one anyhow? I noticed that the landscaper just gave me the LLC on the "Name" line and the LLC's TIN.

So do I need to send him a 1099? If so, do I really send it to the business, or should it be to the owner? I have his name and info, but not SSN for him.

I couldn't figure out where to look on the IRS website, and thought I would ask here.
