Split Payment - Avoid 1099
I'm buying a small piece of property for $1,000.00.
The sellers (mother and daughter) want me to make out two checks for $500 each.
QUESTION: Do I have to send "them" a 1099 for the $1,000 purchase, OR because neither person received a payment of >$600, do I not have to?
Thanks, odd question, and I couldn't find the answer in searching the forums!
