Guest Speaker Love Offering

Giving a love offering to a guest speaker from India. The church members make their checks out to our church for the deduction, but we as the church are giving the love offering in one lump sum. Would a 1099 be issued in this case, keeping in mind the guest speaker is from India.Thanks

No. A 1099 is for US resident only.

I found this blog entry written by Paul Rivera:
IRS Requires 30% Withholding on Love offerings to Foreign Guest Speakers

But it is dated Oct 2009, so I would consult a knowledgeable tax professional about this requirement.
