Cashback, discounts, and rewards have prompted many people to use cash apps to transact online. This phenomenon has proliferated during the pandemic and doesn’t look like it will be slowing down anytime soon.

Therefore, The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) is introducing a strict new rule to track cash app business transactions more effectively in 2022. It means business owners accepting Venmo, Zelle, and Cash App will be under greater scrutiny to report their income from these apps.

Currently, the IRS usually looks into cash app business transactions that cross the $20,000 threshold. However, if the transactions exceed $600 or more, they will now get examined in more detail.

Unfortunately, more government overreach is resulting in less flexibility and increased pressure to report all business income accurately. The new rule will affect business owners and individuals that have to report self-employed income on tax returns. While the situation may seem overwhelming, it’s essential not to panic, as a good bookkeeper can help.
