Integrated Data Management Systems, Inc. (IDMS), a leading provider of W-2 and 1099 software, has made it a priority to include electronic reporting (eFile), electronic delivery (eDelivery) and plain paper filing of Form 1099-K in the 2011 version of its Account Ability Tax Form Preparation software. Jeff Goldstein, IDMS’s president, also added “In an effort to avoid penalties pursuant to IRC §6721 and §6722, Account Ability also includes free Bulk Taxpayer Identification Number (TIN) Matching for recipients of Form 1099-K”.
PSEs that make at least one payment in settlement of reportable transactions must file Form 1099-K with respect to each participating payee for that calendar year. However, third party settlement organizations are only required to file Form 1099-K with respect to each participating payee if both the gross amount of total reportable payment transactions to that payee exceeds $20,000 and the total number of reportable payment transactions exceeds 200.
What is a Payment Settlement Entity? What information must be reported on Form 1099-K? When are Forms 1099-K due? What constitutes the “gross amount” of reportable transactions?
