If I understand your questions correctly, the answer is that the Realtor's commission can be used towards the buyer (family members) closing cost. It will appear on the HUD1 as an expense in the Sellers column and as a credit in the Buyers' column. If the Realtor does not receive, the money there is no tax implication for the Realtor. They may be a tax implication for the Buyer as they are the one receiving the benefit of the money, though depending on the amount and the relationship between the Buyer and Realtor it may be able to be given as a "tax exempt gift", this is a question I would ask my accountant. Unless the Realtor is the owner of the company, you would also need to get written permission from your company to handle the commission in this manner.
