1099-K reporting threshold delayed for third party platform payments

The IRS delayed the new $600 Form 1099-K reporting threshold requirement for third party payment organizations for tax year 2023. For 2023 and prior years, payment apps and online marketplaces are required to send out Forms 1099-K only to taxpayers who receive over $20,000 and have over 200 transactions. For tax year 2024, the IRS plans for a threshold of $5,000 to phase in the new reporting requirements.
