The change to the tax code was signed into law as part of the American Rescue Plan Act, the Covid-19 response bill passed in March.The email looked like it was from PayPal, but he doesn’t have a PayPal account.Moser said that images and references to Neo cryptocurrency were also found in the PayPal's app, which already currently supports Bitcoin , Bitcoin Cash, Ethereum, and Litecoin.Previously, these mobile payment apps only had to tell the tax authorities when a person had over 200 commercial transactions per year that exceeded $20,000 in total value, the IRS said.Starting Jan.The reason Art fell for it is the email looked authentic.1, the IRS said, if a person accrues more than $600 annually in commercial payments on an app like Venmo, then Venmo “must file and furnish a Form 1099-K” for them — reporting on all the commercial income they collected through the app.The internal event saw teams of engineers come up with new ideas and developments which may never actually see the light of day within the company's blockchain, crypto and digital currencies division.The tax-reporting change only applies to charges for commercial goods or services, not personal charges to friends and family, like splitting a dinner bill.“These scammers are very good at impersonating other companies, especially well-known companies,” explained McConnell.Some of our stories include affiliate links.

"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 listing or concert tickets, or paying for a service," PayPal said..’ So, he said, ‘Well download this, just so I can see what’s going on,’ and little bells are going off,” recalled Art.
