Uh, sure you would.  If you want to write it off that is (or even if you don't, I guess).  Doesn't matter how you pay for it.

In a speech in May to payroll industry trade groups, Shulman explained that any transactions paid for with debit or credit cards will be exempt from the reporting requirements because a separate requirement on credit card companies for reporting credit card transactions will give the IRS the information it seeks. "Whenever a business uses a credit or debit card, there will be no new burden under the new law."

This is where I'm getting the payment information from. Maybe I'm missing something. I don't know.  :)

"The payments that are included under this are not only those made directly by check but also those made by other means such as credit cards, for example. Think about the airlines, hotels, rental cars, and restaurants that appear on your credit card bill. You might not think of them as vendors of goods and services, but that is what they are. Also, if you are in the business of selling or distributing goods, all of your suppliers of products are also vendors under the new law. (Under existing law there are regulations that provide narrow exceptions for some types of vendors (telegrams, telephone, freight, storage) and some individual vendors that accept payment from you by credit card and meet qualifications set forth by the IRS. Even if some regulatory exceptions are carried over under the new law, you will still be the one responsible and liable for issuing the information report and it will not be easy.)"


So, perhaps, in some cases.

Hopefully it will be a moot issue, when this silliness is revoked.

Consider who is in charge - Gathers and Rangle, two frauds!

To cover your buts, printout the monthly Transactions for funds receivedd from Pay Pal showing the sites making the deposit into your account.  This is what you should report for income tax purposes.  Considering you are on a cash basis rather than accrual basis.

If you are audited, you can show that there was a duplicate filing of a 1099 (Pay Pal as well as each site.).  No agent can refute that.  If he/she tries; just appeal the decision to the Appelatte Division.  the Appeals officer will see things clearly.  If the Revenue Agent ever drags his heels after you supply information, call the IRS and ask to speak to the Problem Resolution Officer (PRO) in your Area.  The Pro will move things more quickly to resolve an issue; especially if you have tried to get something accomplished with a couple of call to the Examination Division.  Just don't panic or loose your temper.

Seems to me that this is going to work something like a Currency Transaction Report.  IRS will probably use it in their Special Enforcement Group to compare Reported Income to what shows up in a Transaction Report of some sort.  I wouldn't loose any sleep over it.

Sleep tight!

Today's news:

Good that there's a chance it will be repealed, but the odds don't look too good that it is actually going to happen.  >:(

I'll try and keep track of who voted how, and if the repeal doesn't happen, I'll write to my two senators again and tell them how unhappy I am about that (even more so if they voted against repeal).

I don't think they'll actually collect the tax they expect to, but if there's enough "you're against small businesses" fussing, I expect eventually the votes will be found for repeal. Small businesses are the good guys in the political stories :)

Just received a response from one of my senators today.  Apparently the repeal of the 1099s for vendors failed to get enough votes.  Anyone who cares about this might want to consider sending another round of letters to your elected representatives.

Thank you for contacting me regarding reporting requirements for business transactions. Businesses are facing enough problems in this economy without having to deal with more government red tape. 
     Thats why I voted for an amendment introduced by Senator Johanns to the Food Safety bill (S.510) that would have fully repealed any new information reporting requirements. Unfortunately, the measure failed to receive enough votes to overcome a procedural motion. However, I am still committed to finding real solutions to the challenges faced by the business community, and I will press my colleagues on both sides of the aisle to support a full repeal of these onerous requirements.

I got a very similar response from one of mine on Friday - Sen. Murray also voted for the Baucus amendment, but that needed 67 to pass and it fell short. She says she'll keep working on it. Haven't yet heard from Sen. Cantwell...

Mailed my congressional peeps this morning.

Thanks for the update Sean.  What a bunch of idiots that they can't even manage to repeal something NOBODY supports?!!   >:(

I'll fire off another letter and hope it does some good....

I wrote to mine the other day.  I'm especially hoping Rep. Lungren responds and tells me where he's at with the bill he wrote and sponsored in the House (and then later couldn't vote for  >:( ).

Never did hear from Lungren (told y'all he was useless...LOL).  But last night it was encouraging to see the entire Congress stand up during the State of the Union address and applaud the President's call to get rid of this stupid law.

Yeah, it was good to see that this is apparently something they can all agree on, although I don't know why it failed before.

The problem this last time was the 1099 repeal was inserted into a version of the House's Bush tax cuts bill (before the Obama compromise) no one could agree on.  When the compromise was drafted, for whatever reason it was removed from the final version.  Hopefully my congressman reintroduces his bill as a stand-alone bill, so we can just get this over with.

Yeah, it would be great to see this finally put to rest.  The amount of paperwork you have to do as a small business is already onerous enough.
