New Form 1099-K Threshold for the 2022 Tax Year

Updated on July 11, 2022 - 15.00 AM by Admin, TaxBandits

Form 1099-K is an IRS Form used to report the payment transactions made through the payment settlement entities (PSEs) or third-party settlement organizations (TPSOs).

Payment Settlement Entities are business organizations that facilitate credit and debit card transactions and settle the payment between two parties. They are not generally banks.

In this article, we cover the following topics:

1. Overview of the Form 1099-K

The IRS Form 1099-K should be filed with the IRS if Payment Settlement Entities (PSEs) made transactions of more than $600 for each payee during the calendar year on behalf of the payee’s clients. PSEs include credit cards, debit cards, banks, PayPal, Uber, Lyft, and other third-party payers.

2. What are the Form 1099-K Changes for 2022 Tax Year?

Until the 2021 tax year, TPSOs were expected to file Form 1099-K if they made transactions of over $20,000 or if there were more than 200 individual transactions. Under the American Rescue Plan Act, new regulations were put in place for PSEs and TPSOs. These new reporting requirements are much more strict and will result in these entities needing to file many more Forms 1099-K in the upcoming tax year.

From the 2022 tax year forward, TPSOs are expected to file Form 1099-K if they made a total of payments exceeding $600 regardless of any number of transactions.

Changes 2021 Tax Year 2022 Tax Year
