Is there any way to find out if an LLC is taxed as a partnership or a corporation?
If you started a business through your state. You must file as a LLC or a S-Corp etc.. Which you should of filed quarterly by now if you were SCorp. Did your state give you a FIN number? All so if you are contractor certain states make you carry Comp/Liability. If that is the case you could look on your insurance and see what it says. I think you might be LLC
LLC is a corporation by definition, Limited Liability Corporation. When in doubt, file the 1099.
Here are the times when a 1099 must be issued... Reportable payments to corporations. The following payments made to corporations generally must be reported on Form 1099-MISC. • Medical and health care payments reported in box 6. • Fish purchases for cash reported in box 7. • Attorneys' fees reported in box 7. • Gross proceeds paid to an attorney reported in box 14. • Substitute payments in lieu of dividends or tax-exempt interest reported in box 8. • Payments by a federal executive agency for services (vendors) reported in box 7. Lastly, an LLC is a corporation taxed as an S-Corp (pass through) as opposed to a C-Corp. So, it doesn't really matter which one it is for your purposes...just look at the rules above. https://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/i1099msc.pdf
