How to File Form 1099-K Online?
Previously, the income reported on a 1099-K Tax Form was reported on your
1099-MISC and they were not considered different documents. However,
after 2008, the two have become separate. Now, the 1099-MISC Form is usually used for payments made to
independent contractors and self-employed persons, and the 1099-K Form is used to accurately report how much
money you made from card transactions online. You can file through the FIRE (Filing Information Returns Electronically System). If a
payment entity has more than 250 individual returns to file in any given tax year, they must all be
electronically submitted. Payee statements are due the March 31st of every
year. If a payee has given consent, they may receive their documents electronically, although it
is standard to mail a paper copy for their records.
