Here is an answer to one of the most common questions about this new over $600 1099-K rule.
Do payments from friends and families (splitting a check, gifts, etc.) count toward the form 1099-K filing threshold?
No, only payments for goods and services count toward the $600 limit. If you receive a Form 1099-K from a payment processor that includes non-business payments like gifts or settling up with friends, contact the processor and ask for a corrected form before you file your tax return. To help prevent this issue, remind friends and family to check the “Sending money to friends and family” option when sending payments.
