Hi. My name is ***** ***** I will be happy to help you.
You need to issue 1099 if you pay somebody $400 or more for services. But since the person did not provide any services, it is not a payment and 1099 is not required. It is a gift.
I see you read my respond. Do you have any questions? Is there anything else I can help you with today?
