PayPal, Venmo, Zelle IRS Reporting

As of January 1, 2022, platforms like PayPal, Venmo, and Zelle will be required to report transactions to the IRS and issue 1099-K to the taxpayer when there are commercial transactions of $600 or more. Small business owners, which are the predominant taxpayer groups that are impacted, are already required to report the income they receive from these platforms on their returns. However, the IRS will now be able to cross-reference the amounts. Those services that are marked for friends or family transfers will not be included.
