For the most part, 1099 rules remain the same this year, but there is one major change.Â The IRS is now requiring third party payment processors to report payments made to you through their systems.Â You’ll get a 1099-K for each person who paid you with a credit card, debit card, PayPal, etc.Â Similarly, people you have paid via these methods will receive a 1099-K from the payment processor.Â What does this mean for you?
You need to EXCLUDE from your 1099-MISC calculation any amounts you paid via a payment processor (for most people, debit/credit cards and PayPal).
