Do I need to complete a 1099 for someone I split commissions with?

I operate a sole proprietor as a real estate agent.  We did not form a partnership because she was not a licensed agent but we worked the business as a team and split commissions.  Do I need to complete a 1099 for her?

Yes, especially if you paid her over $600 for her help.  1099's for 2017 were due to the IRS on January 31, 2018, so you should complete her 1099 as soon as possible.

Do I need to complete a 1099 for someone I split commissions with?

As  a loan officer, I had commissions paid to me on my W-2 that were split with my partner

I paid him by check and issued him a 1099 for the $6500 (his share)

 

In years past, this was a 1099 pmt and easy to get the funds out of net income. 

If I take it a a business expense without income it is causing the business to lose $  - leaving the full amount in the personal income section - 

 

How to I correctly account for the commission I paid to others and adjust my personal income?
