Since you're on 1099, you could hire a collection agency or a lawyer,
or write a letter saying that you plan to if they don't pay what they
owe you by a certain date.

The IRS wouldn't do anything to help you get paid so there's no upside
for you in contacting them. Mentioning the IRS might encourage your
agency and their client to pay you since misclassification can lead to
fines.

Since this you're in California, they also owe you overtime for any
work you did beyond 8 hours a day or 40 hours a week.
