In absence of those, I would write your own receipts for your records and keep any other form of proof you can obtain that would also document the purchase.
I have this backwards in the OP. The 1099, much like your W-2, has to be postmarked to the recipient by January 31st. The IRS's copy is not due until February 28th. I would still wait to the end of February if you believe you should receive one as some preparation may be delinquent.
When I get some more time, I will update the OP for the additional questions in this thread.
Paypal has posted my 1099 on their site. Can I use this to file taxes?
Can I just use my year end statement as a receipt. It shows all payments received and all payments made and shows a wash (actually a small loss), or do I have to provide all receipts?
My main transactions are for group breaks and I do not profit on my breaks as others do.
