Early Christmas gift. . . On December 23, 2022 the IRS decided to delay implementation of the 1099K reporting for tax year 2022.

Translation: The American Rescue Act (2021) required E commerce platforms (e.g. Ebay, Mercari, Amazon) to provide a 1099K form to sellers receiving more than $600 through the platform website.    The E Commerce platform must also provide the IRS with a copy of the 1099K. The IRS matches the income reported on these forms. So if this income is not reported on the “Website seller’s” tax return, the IRS will issue a notice.  This provision will not be enforced for 2022 tax year. Warning, it will be enforced in 2023.
