Taxes – Does my accountant need to send you a 1099?
Because all income we receive is paid through PayPal, it is PayPal who automatically issues us a 1099 for the year (it’s actually a 1099-K). The 1099-K that we receive from PayPal includes all income that we’ve earned throughout the year and is what our accountant uses for our tax returns.
If your accountant needs additional info, we recommend sending them this link to PayPal which provides more info about 1099 K: https://www.paypal.com/va/smarthelp/article/how-does-paypal-report-my-sales-to-the-irs-will-i-receive-a-tax-form-1099-k-faq729
Also, if you take a quick look on this CPA’s site, at the top of the page (second paragraph) it provides an explanation of why you do not need to issue us anything. https://amynorthardcpa.com/paid-contractors-via-paypal-need-issue-1099s/
