Receiving payment via Venmo or Paypal

Hi Cutlos, Thanks for the question.


Regardless if you receive a 1099-K (issued for $600 and above) from PayPal and Venmo for the job completed, you should report the amount received as a self employment income on Schedule C and claim all the related business expenses to earn that income.


Hope this helps.
