What Is Form 1099-K?
The forms in the Internal Revenue Services (IRS's) 1099 series help taxpayers report monies received from a variety of sources that aren't a paycheck. Form 1099-K, "Payment Card and Third Party Network Transactions," is the IRS form that taxpayers receive to report certain payment transactions. If you're self-employed or an independent contractor, you report 1099-K income on Schedule C of your federal Form 1040 tax return.
Who Needs Form 1099-K?
You should receive Form 1099-K by Jan. 31 if, in the prior calendar year, you received payments from payment card transactions (including debit cards, credit cards, stored-value cards, or PayPal) and/or in settlement of third-party payment network transactions involving gross payments of more than $20,000 and more than 200 transactions. Typically, large-volume online sellers file taxes with a 1099-K. You receive a 1099-K from each payment settlement entity (PSE) from which you received income for reportable payment transactions in the previous year. That means a payment card transaction or a third-party network transaction: 1. "Payment card transaction" means any transaction in which a payment card, or any account number or other identifying data associated with a payment card, is accepted as payment. 2. "Third-party network transaction" means any transaction settled through a third-party payment network—but only after the total exceeds the above thresholds. The gross amount of a reportable payment doesn’t include adjustments for credits, cash equivalents, discount amounts, fees, refunded amounts, or any other amounts.
