1099 of a travel colleague
I posted an earlier question based on this but I think I have to be more specific.
I claimed a travel expense for a rep to accompany me on specific business trips. This particular rep was the customer contact and had the relationship with the customer. It was necessary for me to bring this person along because of that relationship and because they have greater knowledge of the product we are selling. In addition, the rep would benefit from any sale. Therefore, this person was necessary to take along. That being said, do I need to 1099 the rep for the cost of the flight and hotel? If the rep had paid for thei own flight and hotel, they could've taken the deduction. In addition, this rep is a corporation. So, again. Do I need to 1099 this person?
