Businesses won’t have to separately report amounts shown on 1099-Ks on a special line on Schedule C and on Forms 1065, 1120 and 1120-S after all. The IRS has reversed course and waived permanently the separate reporting requirement for reconciling gross receipts with 1099-K forms for 2012 and beyond.  

In October 2011 the IRS released guidance on reporting revenues from third-parties such as Visa, American Express and PayPal. These settlement companies were to issue Form 1099-K to businesses and the IRS, documenting all transactions and gross receipts processed throughout the year. This information was to be reported on tax returns beginning with 2012.
