Regarding 1099s, the questions imply that I am the owner of the business where in fact I am a subcontracted masseuse working for a business and received my 1099 from them

Am I right to pursue the submission or is there another place to add the 1099 where I’m not the owner of the business?

Regarding 1099s, the questions imply that I am the owner of the business where in fact I am a subcontracted masseuse working for a business and received my 1099 from them

When you work on an independent contractor basis and you have 1099-MISC income, the IRS classifies you as self-employed and they look at you as having your "own business."  This is why the questions are implying that you are the owner of the business - because you are in the eyes of the IRS.  

But, the business they are talking about is you - not the place you did the contract work at.  So, you should simply answer the questions with your own information for the business - i.e. address, name, number etc.  You don't need to have a formal arrangement to be considered a business.
