    MILLIONS of users will have to get used to new tax limitations on third-party networks like Venmo and PayPal. The IRS is advising users on what they'll need to do differently when filing taxes. 1Users of third-party payments apps will have to reports anything they earn over $600Credit: Getty The alternative payment sites now have a $600 threshold for how much you can receive before you start seeing tax penalties. Before 2022, the federal reporting threshold was only for taxpayers with over 200 transactions worth a total of over $20,000. Congress decimated that amount as part of the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021, making it so even a single transaction worth $600 will cause users to file the federal Form 1099-k. The new limit is estimated to bring in $8.4 billion from fiscal year 2021 to 2031, according to the Joint Committee on Taxation.

    AN IRS reporting rule change will impact certain taxpayers earning money on PayPal and Venmo this year. For quite some time now, third-party payments have been required to report a user’s earnings to the Internal Revenue Service. 1Tax expert Kari Brummond shares her best tips to The Sun This has previously applied to those who received more than 200 transactions that exceeded $20,000. However, a change under the American Rescue Act, which took effect at the beginning of this year, has lowered the payment amount figure to $600 – with the number of transactions now irrelevant. Now you’re probably thinking, you might have received well beyond that threshold in the past year – and are worried about a big tax bill. Well, not necessarily, as this rule change won’t apply to everyone. And keep in mind that the rule change takes effect this year, meaning moves made now could affect your next tax season. The group that will be affected the most this year by the change is those receiving payments for businesses purposes. Most read in MoneyMEAL DEAL How...
    NEW IRS rules for 2022 mean that more commercial transactions on PayPal and Venmo are taxable, and your teen may make a simple mistake that could leave them owing taxes. Previously, the IRS only required digital payment apps to tell them when a user had more than 200 commercial transactions above a total of $20,000 per year. 1Take a close look at your teen's PayPal and Venmo settings to keep from owing the IRSCredit: Getty But as of January 1, 2022, those who make transactions totaling more than $600 each year in commercial payments through the app will need to request a 1099-K form and pay taxes on those transactions. PayPal released a statement to help consumers understand their responsibility. "PayPal and Venmo offer a way for customers to tag their peer-to-peer (P2P) transactions as either personal/friends and family or goods and services by choosing the appropriate category for each transaction," the payment giant said. "Users should select Goods and Services whenever they are sending money to another user to purchase an item, like a couch from a local ad...
    GOP Sen. Bill Hagerty introduced a bill Tuesday that would block a provision of President Biden's American Rescue Plan that requires third-party payment processors to report business transactions over $600.  Part of the American Rescue Plan, which passed last spring with no Republican votes, stipulated that beginning in the 2022 tax season platforms like Venmo, PayPal and Cash App had to report business transactions if they exceeded $600, to ensure small businesses were paying their fair share in taxes.  This forces thousands of small businesses to file a 1099 and provide personal information to the IRS, 'despite the IRS' poor history of safeguarding Americans' personal data,' the Tennessee senator and member of the Banking Committee said in a press release.  Hagerty is leading a group of Republican senators in introducing the 'Stop the Nosy Obsession with Online Payments' Act, or SNOOP Act, to block the new provision that they say amounts to a tax increase.  Hagerty is leading a group of Republican senators in introducing the 'Stop the Nosy Obsession with Online Payments' Act, or SNOOP Act, to block the new...
    AT the start of the New Year, business owners using third-party payment processors were forced to report $600 transactions or higher to the IRS. Under the IRS' new rules, the online payment giants such as Venmo, PayPal and Cash App were told to report commercial transactions of $600 or higher starting January 1. 1Here's how you can avoid paying taxes when using ZelleCredit: Getty Millions of small business owners in America fell under the rules implemented last March as part of the American Rescue Plan Act to help with the US response to the Covid pandemic. PayPal, Venmo and Cash App have made it possible for users to process transactions as "friends and family" to avoid being taxed. However, Zelle does not offer the option because it's not subject to the same law as third-party payment networks. The difference between Zelle and third-party processors is that the funds sent through Zelle go directly from the payer's bank account into the payee's bank account. On the other hand, Venmo, PayPal and Cash App allow users to hold the funds within...
    VENMO, PayPal, Zelle, and Cash App must report certain $600 transactions to the Internal Revenue Service under new rules. The online payment giants have been told that from January 1 they must report commercial transactions of that value or higher. 1The new rules came into effect on January 1 It means that the tax man now wants to see a 1099-K form from the app if a person makes more than $600 each year in commercial payments. That means millions of small business owners in America are set to fall under the rules. The move is part of the American Rescue Plan Act signed in March to help with the US response to Covid. Previously the IRS only required the apps to tell them when a user had more than 200 commercial transactions above a total of $20,000 per year. The change does not apply to splitting a dinner with friends.

    Third-party payment processors, including Venmo, PayPal, and Cash App, will be required to report business transactions of users exceeding $600 a year to the Internal Revenue Service, according to a new tax law going into effect in January. Previously, third-party payment apps were only mandated to notify the gross income of users who had over 200 distinct transactions or exceeded $20,000, according to a report. The new change is the product of the American Rescue Plan, which passed in March 2021. HILLARY CLINTON TWEET DOESN'T MAKE 'CENTS' The form to report the information is Form 1099-K, which records services transactions and goods acquired in a calendar year to the IRS. The new tax law, the $600 rule, will apply to all payments received for service payments and goods, according to the report. It will not apply to individuals who use a third-party system to send a gift to an individual or for acts like paying someone back for buying dinner, the report noted. "You may notice that in the coming months we...
    President Biden's IRS is cracking down on payments made through third-party apps, requiring platforms like Venmo, PayPal and Cash App to report transactions if they exceed $600 in one year.  The new reporting requirement will ensure that small businesses that receive payments through those apps are paying their fair share in taxes on them.  Beginning Jan. 1, 2022, third-party payment processors were required to  report such transactions. Though businesses were always required to self-report such incomes to the IRS, many often did not keep record of their smaller transactions. The payment apps were previously required to send users 1099-K forms if their gross income exceeded $20,000 or they had more than 200 transactions per year.  The new tax law was part of the March 2021 American Rescue Plan, which passed with no Republican votes.  President Biden's IRS is cracking down on payments made through third-party apps, requiring platforms like Venmo, PayPal and Cash App to report transactions if they exceed $600 in one year The new reporting requirement will ensure that small businesses that receive payments through those apps are...
    One key prong of President Biden's plan to bankroll Democrats' $3.5 trillion budget plan is to monitor every inflow and outflow of an individual's bank account.  The proposal would require banks to report to the IRS every deposit and withdrawal from an account, including transactions from Venmo, PayPal, crypto exchanges and the like in an effort to fight tax evasion. The IRS would know how much money is in an individual's bank account in a given year, whether the individual earned income on that account and exactly how much was going in an and out.  Biden, Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen, IRS chief Charles Rettig and a number of Democrats in the Senate, most especially Elizabeth Warren, are pushing for the deep dive into individual financial transactions as part of an $80 billion plan to enforce tax compliance. Other parts of the plan include setting up a global minimum corporate tax rate  of 15% and a system that prevents multinational companies from registering profits in the lowest-tax jurisdictions and raising taxes on the rich.  A Treasury Department report from May claimed...

    Mobile payment app, Venmo will now let customers buy and sell bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies, marking the latest effort to make digital tokens more mainstream. The Paypal-owned Venmo said starting Tuesday it will display a new feature on its app that will let users buy four different cryptocurrencies — bitcoin, ether, litecoin and bitcoin cash — with a minimum spending requirement of $1.  The move build’s on PayPal’s decision to allow users to buy crypto through its main platform and use them to pay online merchants for goods globally. With more than 70 million users, most of which are younger Americans, Venmo is a natural choice for PayPal to extend its cryptocurrency service. “No matter where you are in your cryptocurrency journey, crypto on Venmo will help our community to learn and explore cryptocurrencies on a trusted platform and directly in the app they know and love,” said Darrell Esch, a senior vice president and general manager of Venmo. “Our goal is to provide our customers with an easy-to-use platform that simplifies the process of buying and selling cryptocurrencies and demystifies some of the common...

Starting Tuesday, Venmo will show users a new feature that lets them invest in four different cryptocurrencies — bitcoin, ether, litecoin and bitcoin cash — with a minimum spending requirement of $1. They can also share their crypto purchases with friends through Venmo's social feed. The development expands on an initial move by PayPal to let users buy crypto through its main platform. More recently, the company started letting people use their crypto holdings to pay at millions of its online merchants globally. With more than 70 million users, Venmo is one of the most popular digital payment services in the U.S. It's particularly popular among younger Americans who use the app to make payments or split purchases with friends and family. It competes with Square's Cash App. "No matter where you are in your cryptocurrency...
    Venmo is releasing a feature that will allow users the option to store, buy, and sell popular cryptocurrencies, PayPal announced on Tuesday. Similar to PayPal, Venmo will support four different cryptocurrencies: Bitcoin, Ethereum, Bitcoin Cash, and Litecoin. PayPal had said last year that Venmo would get support for cryptocurrencies. You can get started with as little as $1, and transactions are managed from the app. Venmo said in a press release that it will begin rolling out the feature to some users today, and tells The News Brig it anticipates that “most customers” will have access to cryptocurrencies in the app by the end of May. All cryptocurrency transactions will be managed directly from the Venmo app.Image: Venmo Venmo’s support for cryptocurrencies could encourage more people to invest in them. PayPal reported in 2019 that Venmo had 40 million users; given the app operates like a social network, users may find cryptocurrency more approachable if they can see their friends buying and selling right inside Venmo.

    CVS is following up on its promise to take pharmacy payments through PayPal and Venmo. Visit 8,200 CVS locations and you can display a QR code in the PayPal or Venmo apps to pay using credit cards (including Venmo’s), debit cards, PayPal Credit, bank accounts or existing balances. You only have to tap Scan and choose a “show to pay” option. You won’t pay fees, and you can still use CVS’ ExtraCare rewards for your purchases. The incentive remains the same: this saves you from having to touch a potentially infected keypad or grab a similarly risky pen to sign a receipt. You might only have to touch your phone and the products you picked up.
    PayPal on Wednesday announced it would begin supporting cryptocurrencies for the first time, allowing any PayPal account holder to store, buy, and sell popular virtual currencies starting later this year. The announcement makes PayPal arguably the most significant company in the financial tech sector to adopt support for virtual currencies. PayPal competitor Square launched support for bitcoin back in 2018 through its Cash app (Square also purchased $50 million worth of bitcoin earlier this month), but PayPal is going further in supporting bitcoin, Ethereum, Bitcoin Cash, and Litecoin. PayPal also plans to extend support to its money-sending subsidiary Venmo and international markets starting early next year. For now, PayPal plans to launch digital currency support for US users in the coming weeks. PayPal will extend support to Venmo early next year The move makes PayPal a major digital wallet as well as a cryptocurrency exchange, and the result could substantially increase potential adoption of cryptocurrencies among everyday users and online merchants. According to Bloomberg, PayPal has more than 346 million active accounts, of which 26 million are merchants....
    CVS pharmacies will soon let you do touch-free payments using your PayPal or Venmo accounts by using PayPal’s QR code payment system, PayPal has announced . The system will let shoppers “securely pay for their items without needing to touch a keypad or sign a receipt,” according to PayPal. PayPal supports various means of payment, including stored debit or credit cards, bank accounts, a PayPal balance or a PayPal credit. On Venmo (which is owned by PayPal), “customers can pay using their stored debit or credit cards, bank account, Venmo balance or Venmo rewards” without any user fees, according to PayPal.
    CVS is expanding its payment options by teaming up with PayPal to use its QR codes as another touch-free form of payment at the retail pharmacy chain. PayPal and Venmo users can pay with money that’s already in their account instead of having to pay with a credit card, and Venmo users can also use Venmo Rewards to pay for items, all “without needing to touch a keypad or sign a receipt.” CVS says the new QR codes will arrive at 8,200 of its US stores in the fourth quarter of 2020. Since we’re in the middle of an ongoing pandemic, it’s not the most ideal to be touching in public, so if you don’t have tap-to-pay on your phone or simply don’t use it, it’s another way to do touch-free payment at stores. CVS says it will be the first nationwide retailer to accept PayPal and Venmo QR codes at checkout CVS has already offered touch-free payment options through NFC since 2018, such as Apple and Google Pay — but for several years, CVS rejected NFC support and...
