1099-K Not Actual Income. I used PayPal to collect donations for a charity event; all money passed through me to the charity. But the 1099-K makes it look like income.

How do I file so this is not seen by the IRS as income?

Don't report it at all, if you don't have a business and this isn't business income. There is no place to report this as "non-income," but just retain your  documentation  about the charity event along with the 1099-K in the event that you are ever questioned.
