Those of you in the know - I need help.

I have a situation where property is being sold by citizens of Taiwan, one of whom is a resident of the State of SC and has a Social Security Number. The other seller, who I understand is also a resident of SC, but is not a citizens, has no Social Security Number. Because this is investment property, I must submit a 1099 at the end of the year to the IRS for this transaction.

Is it not required that I have the social security numbers for both of the sellers?
