It sounds like you'd be the best one to ask this.  If these payments
wind up being less than $600 for the year, what is the requirement?  I
assume you wouldn't have to actually file a 1099, but do you still
have to collect the information?  What would you have to do, if
anything, to stop people from running up multiple payments of less
than $600 using multiple names or whatever?  Is it enough to just get
people's names, or do you have to ask SSNs?

I probably should know this, but I have to admit I don't, and my quick
reading of IRC 3406 leaves me unsure.
