This will require taxpayers to use a 1099-K form whenever a person makes over $600 per year in commercial payments.

The IRS said this is a law under the American Rescue Plan. After COVID-19, the American Rescue Plan was created as a response.

The former rules were that the payment companies needed to report over 200 commercial transactions to the IRS, or a total exceeding $20,000 in one year.

PayPal and Venmo both offer ways to choose peer-to-peer transactions for goods and services.

Choose Goods and Services. This includes paying for dinner with friends or for things off Craigslist.

By choosing this, it signifies that it isn’t a small business transaction requiring reporting to the IRS.
