As I mentioned on your other question, IRS has been utilizing the audit process highly here. The exemption for 1099-MISC being sent to corporations does not apply to 1099-S.

Expert:  Lane replied 1 year ago.

Becaus of the increased scrutiny MANY closing agents are send 1099-s regardless of any. Exemption.


See this from IRS (from the instructions for 1099-S



The following is a list of transactions that are not reportable; however, you may choose to report them. If you do, you are subject to the rules in these instructions."

IRS doesn't help what they say that they are more than welcome to send it anyway.
