Wrong TIN information on form 1099-K

I have an Intuit merchant account and this account was wrongfully established as a sole proprietor but the owner is a C-Corporation. I received the form 1099-K with the sales received under my social security number and not the corporation EIN.

Intuit had informed me that they will NOT issue a corrected form 1099-K, stating that this is not possible.

I don't know how to fix that information on the IRS, and they will for sure charge this tax on my personal tax return.
