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

PayPal is required by the IRS to report the sales of goods and services for customers who, in a single year receive:

  • More than $20,000 USD, AND
  • 200 or more payments.

IRS Section 6050W applies to all payment providers, including PayPal. You can find more information and FAQs about IRS 6050W on the PayPal IRS 6050W website.
