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.
