I disagree. As someone else pointed out, if I was a true subcontractor,
they were not under a legal obligation to report what they paid me. I think
the situation is analogous to the situation where I hire a contractor to do
some work on my house. I contract for them to do some work; I pay what they
invoice. I don't report that payment to the Federal, State, or local
governments, nor am I obligated to do so.

Had I been employed by the other company either directly or indirectly, I
would agree with you that they owed me documentation--and may have owed the
Government taxes. As it was, that whole burden was on me. Remember, I was
paying my quarterly taxes--something everyone should do if they're not being
withheld, by the way.
