1099-K Reporting Requirements

Federal form 1099-K, Payment Card and Third-Party Network Transactions, is used by credit card companies and third-party payment processors (also referred to as “third-party settlement organizations” or “TPSOs”) to report the payment transactions they process for retailers or other third parties to the IRS. Per section 212.134, Florida Statutes, effective January 1, 2021, those credit card companies and TPSOs are also required to file the informational returns electronically, using the file specifications set forth in IRS Publication 1220, with the Florida Department of Revenue for any payees in the State of Florida.

Submission Requirements

Payment settlement entities, or their electronic payment facilitators or contracted third parties, must file the 1099-K with the Department if they are required to file the return to the IRS pursuant to section 6050W of the Internal Revenue Code. The 1099-K is due to the Department 30 days after the federal return is filed.

A penalty of $1,000 per month, not to exceed $10,000 annually, may be imposed for failure to file the information required.

For reporting purposes, the State of Florida adheres to Internal Revenue Service (IRS) guidelines regarding threshold amounts for 1099-K filings by payment card companies, payment apps, and online marketplaces. These thresholds are set by the IRS and are subject to change. Please refer to the IRS guidelines for the most current threshold amounts applicable for both federal and State of Florida reporting purposes.

How to File
