Paypal is the only one that might send you a 1099, but only if you meet bother of these requirements:

 

  •  US$20,000 in gross payment volume from sales of goods or services in a single year
  •   200 separate payments for goods or services in the same year

Form 1099-K is informational only -- you do not need it to file your federal tax return.

There were posts from members who had gotten their 1099-K's from PayPal in late January. You can also download it from your account. Did you pass both of the thresholds? There's also a 2-page "Annual financial summary" in PayPal under History > Reports.

Perhaps, but what it is informing you is that the IRS knows how much money passed through your paypal account. So while you may not need to file it with your return, you had better account for it in your return.

Yes, I should have one due to my sales.  I don't care if you do or do not need it to file your taxes.  I need the information contained on it.

I haven't gotten mine yet.  Could print it out, I guess.  May have to.

I never wait for a copy in the mail, I always print it out as soon as it's available.

Just go to PayPal and print it, that's what I did. I have not gotten my copy in the mail yet, but I've already done my taxes.

It is under the History dropdown and then it says Tax Documents.
