Venmo sale > $600

If sold something, such as an old, used ATV,  with payment of > $600 on Venmo, does this have to be reported as income?  Does Venmo provide tax documents?

Venmo sale > $600

Yes this income needs to be reported and taxes paid on it. You should receive a 1099-K from Venmo for the amount you received.

There are 2 ways to report the income.

  1. If it is a hobby then the income is reported on schedule 1 for the full amount of the 1099 no expenses allowed to be taken
  2. If it is a business then it would be reported on a schedule C (self-employed income). You would report the 1099 as income and then deduct the expenses you have against making that income.
