Should our multi-member LLC have clients send us a 1099 for the work we performed?

Answer by Wray Rives:

You should not get a 1099 from your own LLC and if the money went to the LLC then you should not receive a 1099 from your clients.  If you are a multi-member LLC and have not made any corporate elections for the LLC, then you should be filing your taxes as a partnership (Form 1065).  You and your partner should each receive a K1 that reports your individual share of the profits and losses that you then report on your individual tax returns.  If you are being paid separately for performing work, then you classify those payments as guaranteed payments, which are part of the amounts reported on your K1.
If the money went directly to you, then yes get a 1099 from the client and report that income separate from your share of the LLC's income.
My guess is your clients would rather pay the partnership so they don't have to send out a 1099.
