To learn more about the 1099-K tax form, go to the IRS website.
In the US, Adyen is required to file a 1099-K tax form with the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) for any US-based user to which Adyen pays out directly. Some states require filing of 1099-K forms as well.
Note that this threshold is lower than previous years, when the threshold was a gross processed volume of USD 20,000 and a minimum of 200 payments per calendar year.
Adyen follows the IRS requirements for reporting gross processed volume prior to deduction of fees, chargebacks, and refunds.
