How does PayPal report my sales to the IRS? Will I receive a 1099 tax statement?

PayPal will track the payment volume of your account(s) to check whether your payment volume exceeds both of these levels in a calendar year:

  • $20,000 USD in gross payment volume from sales of goods or services in a single year
  • 200 payments for goods or services in the same year

You may be asked to provide your tax ID number, such as a Social Security Number (SSN) or Employer Identification Number (EIN), to your existing account(s), if you don’t already have one on file.

If you cross the IRS thresholds in a given calendar year, PayPal will send Form 1099-K to you and the IRS for that year early in the following year.

You can find more information and FAQs by visiting the PayPal tax website.
