Third Party Reporting Information Center - Information Documents

The IRS uses third-party information reporting on forms in the 1099 series to increase voluntary compliance and improve collections. Beginning in 2011, legislation requires reporting of income in two areas: payment card (credit, debit and certain electronic transactions) and securities basis reporting.

The links below take you to forms, instructions and background information related to the reporting requirements of payment cards and cost basis of securities sales. These regulations, notices and FAQs provide details on the implementation of Section 6050W of the Housing Assistance Tax Act of 2008 and of Section 6045(g) of the Energy Improvement and Extension Act of 2008.
