How do I get copies of 1099 and 1096 forms filed with the IRS?

I need to get copies of 1099s and 1096 forms that I filed for my independent contractors in 2007, where can I get this from? I went to my local irs office, but they didnt have it. I also called the IRS but they didnt seem to be much help in helping me figuring it out. I need this information to provide to EDD.
Update: We were brand new in business and didnt keep them for 2007. We actually got copies from two of our independent contractors but are missing one. I have them for the other years. And its not for an audit. Thanks for all those who placed valuable feedback/info. I will get on the phone first thing.
