What is a 1099-K form?

The 1099-K is a tax information form generally used to report payment transactions. When using a 1099-K for information reporting, a copy must be delivered to the payment recipient and filed with the IRS.

Who receives a 1099-K?

Recipients of a 1099-K are mostly merchants who have received payment using a third-party payment network like our system. Whether the recipient receives a 1099-K or not, we are still required to do the tax filings. On November 21st, the IRS announced that the 1099-K filing threshold will remain at 20,000 USD and 200 transactions for tax year 2023.

If the gross amount of total reportable payments exceeds $20,000 and the total number of such transactions exceeds 200 in a calendar year —and they're based in the US or are a US taxpayer—payees should expect to receive a 1099-K, either through paperless delivery or paper mailing.
