We flip houses. Owe investors interest from sale of house in 2018. Won't be able to pay the funds to til 5/15/19. Put expense of interest in 2018 but 1099s in 2019?

We buy, rehab and sell houses under an LLC.  In 2018 our mom and aunt invested with us to get another property.  We sold the property but didn't have the funds to pay their interest.  Being family, they are patient with us:)   I had reported the interest expense under the property that they invested in and that we sold in 2018.  Since they are not paid yet I was planning to create their 1099-int in May of 2019 (when they are getting their checks) but just realized that this might not be the right way to file.  Pretty new to this and am making some rookie mistakes.   I did file an extension for the LLC and my personal taxes.

Any help would be appreciated.   Thank you!

People come to TurboTax AnswerXchange for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
