IRS Updates FAQs for Form 1099-K: What You Need to Know


The IRS has recently revised the FAQs for Form 1099-K, focusing on Payment Card and Third Party Network Transactions, in Fact Sheet 2024-03 PDF. The goal is to offer more clarity for taxpayers and industry professionals during the current filing season.


Key Points


  1. Postponed Reporting Threshold: Following feedback, the IRS delayed the new $600 Form 1099-K reporting threshold for third-party settlement organizations for the calendar year 2023. This decision aims to reduce confusion for taxpayers.

  2. Transition Year for 2023: The IRS is treating 2023 as an additional transition year. Reporting is not mandatory unless a taxpayer receives over $20,000 and has more than 200 transactions in 2023. However, forms may still be received for amounts below this threshold.

  3. Updated FAQs: The FAQs now cover general information, guidance for common situations, and details for organizations responsible for sending Forms 1099-K. These updates complement other resources on IRS.gov which include Understanding Your Form 1099-K.

  4. Reliable Guidance: Taxpayers can rely on guidance published in the Internal Revenue Bulletin and FAQs for additional information.

For more details and a smoother filing process, taxpayers can explore the updated FAQs on the IRS website.
