Why Has the New 1099-K Threshold Been Delayed?

Following the IRS’s announcement that it will be enforcing the new lower threshold for issuing 1099-Ks on third-party casual sale transactions in tax year 2023, confusion and outrage poured out from taxpayers.

Before 2023, the reporting threshold was more than 200 transactions totaling $20,000. The new rule, which had already been delayed once in 2022, changes it to $600 from just a single transaction, upon which third party apps like Venmo would have to issue a 1099-K to the money’s recipient. Since the new rule was delayed to the 2023 tax year, many Americans were caught off guard and demanded a walk-back.

Following the backlash, the IRS made the decision to delay the new threshold’s implementation once again. 2023 will now be treated as a transitional year with no change. 2024 is planned to begin phasing in the new rule by lowering the threshold from $20,000 to $5,000. Further IRS action will be based on taxpayer feedback on the new implementation schedule.
