    IRS Reporting Requirements for Third Party Vendor Payments on 1099-K/1099-MISC

    Article ID: 2001238


    Beginning with tax year 2011, the IRS requires you to exclude certain payment types you made to a 1099 vendor on Form 1099-MISC that will be included on third party payment processors such as credit card companies, PayPal etc. on forms 1099-K.


    You need to file 1099 forms and have paid 1099 vendors/contractors using payment types other than cash or check, such as debit card, credit card or third party networking companies, like PayPal.
    If you paid your 1099 recipients with only cash or check this legislation does not apply to you.


    If you have made payments to vendors you will only need to report certain types of transactions and exclude others. Intuit is aware of these compliance changes and working on solutions for our customers.
