Have you talked to your CPA? The system you describe doesn't sound
right. My company is also incorporated, and while we don't work through
agencies, we've never been paid on a 1099 basis. My understanding is
that 1099s are for reporting payments to independent contractors, while
W2s report employee salaries. As a corporation, you should receive
payment directly, which you report as income on your corporate tax
return. Good luck getting this straightened out.
