You May Need To Prepare for 1099-K Reporting

The IRS Tax law, since 2011, has required third-party settlement organizations such as Venmo, PayPal, CashApp, and Ebay to report transactions over $20,000 in payments per year from over 200 transactions. The American Rescue Plan of 2021 abruptly changed the reporting threshold to $600 per year regardless of the number of transactions. This change was supposed to have taken place beginning for 2022 transactions. However, some pressure from the tax preparation community and businesses have caused the IRS to delay for one year the implementation of the $600 threshold, so it will be applicable to transactions that occur beginning in 2023 instead of those in 2022.

Will the Recently Passed Pension Legislation Affect You?

The President, on December 29, 2022, signed the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2023, which is the “omnibus spending bill” Congress needed to pass to avoid a government shutdown. That legislation also included the Setting Every Community Up for Retirement Enhancement (SECURE) 2.0 Act, a.k.a. the SECURE 2.0 Act, that can significantly impact and augment your retirement planning strategies. The SECURE 2.0 Act incorporates provisions from proposed legislation that was passed by the House and another bill that was passed by the Senate that had not previously been reconciled.
