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.

What does the W-9 say? Didn't get one? Should have. Better late than never.

I see that I didn't specifically say that I got the info off the W-9 in my first post when I talked about the name and TIN, but that's what I meant, so sorry about the confusion I may have caused there. The W-9 has the line where it says "Name as shown on your income tax return) as the name of the landscaping business. As I look at it closer, I see that he has checked off the box that says S-Corp, and has given me the Employer ID number.

So yes, I have a W-9, and this is the info that is on it, but I'm still not sure if I should be sending a 1099. It is someone local, so if I need to have his personal info, I can get that as well. I'm not worried about getting the correct info. I just want to make sure that I do the 1099 correctly, and I wasn't sure if I needed one for this situation.

Does that give you enough info to answer my question?

Thanks for your expertise.

An S-Corp is a corporation, so follow the 1099 instructions for corporation payees. I believe you said that they're not required, but I haven't looked at the 1099 instructions, probably my least favorite.

Thanks, Phil. Per the instructions for the 1099, payments to corporations are not reportable, so I won't need to do anything for this one. I've not had one of these before as all of DH's subs tend to be sole proprietors like him with a few that are corporations, but this is the first time I've run across an LLC, and it confused me.

Thanks for your prompt response.
