Tax Implications for Zelle payments

I see every other payment app being listed beside zelle regarding $600 income taxes


1. is Zelle a wire transfer?


2. Do you pay taxes when receiving “tips/ splitting the bill” when $600 has been reached on Zelle


3. Will Zelle send a 1099 Form?

Tax Implications for Zelle payments

Hi  toastpost89,


Great question! Zelle works a bit different from the other apps mainly because it is a payment platform. They do not issue a 1099-K Form instead if payments you receive on Zelle are taxable it is your responsibility to report them to the IRS.  The law about the $600 does not apply to Zelle.


Hope this answers your questions, have a good day!
