10520: 1099-K - Data Entry

1040 Individual

How do I enter amounts from Form 1099-K, Merchant Card and Third Party Payments?

Separate reporting of Form 1099-K is no longer required by the IRS. Within Drake Tax, gross receipts received via payment card (credit and debit cards) and third party network payments can be entered on the following screens as an undifferentiated part of gross receipts:

  • Screen C - Schedule C
  • Screen E - Schedule E
  • Screen F - Schedule F
  • Screen 99K - State Use Only*
  • Screen INC in 1120, 1120S and 1065 returns.

Reporting requirements have changed starting with tax year 2022; see IRS News Release IR-2022-226 and IRS Notice 2023-10 for complete details. The IRS also has an FAQ page regarding Form 1099-K. 

For special Form 1099-K situations where Form 1099-K was issued for personal items sold at a loss, or for a Form 1099-K that was received in error, use the drop downs for line 8z on the screen 3.  Choose Form 1099-K Personal Item Sold at a Loss or Incorrect Form 1099-K, as appropriate. Drake Tax will automatically complete line 24z with the same amount to offset the transaction with zero effect on the return.

See the video Form 1099-K for a demonstration. 

*Beginning in Drake17, Form 1099-K data entry is available for state returns only. Data entered on the 99K screen located on the States tab, is used to produce a copy of Form 1099-K for certain states that require the source document for e-file purposes. State tax withheld entered in box 8, is the ONLY amount that flows to a state form. The 99K screen is only for use by states that require the source document-- no data entered flows to a federal form.

Note: On the 99K screen, if the PSE checkbox is marked, the PSE's Name and PSE's Phone fields at the bottom of the screen must not be completed. Those fields are only relevant If the FILER is an Electronic payment Facilitator (EPF)/Other Third Party and that box is marked instead.
