As of right now if your account got the first Tax ID notification but did not receive the second notice where your account is actually "soft" limited (can't receive payments) then those accounts have reset and you can sell in 2019 as if you never received the first notice.

However, it seems the accounts that got the first and second notification (soft limitation, can't receive payment) are still limited.

I am still unable to accept payments on one of my accounts. When you try to list, its says my paypal account cannot accept payments at this time.

I received my first notice on 12/1 right after I received a $7.01 payment. I received my second notice on 12/31 right after I received a $5.30 payment. This account did not cross 200 items or $20K. I was hoping for the reset however as of today there's no reset. I was able to transfer all of the money with the exception of a small amount to my bank account. Also, I guess because there was not enough in the account to cover eBay fees, they initiated an eCheck for fees. I'm seriously contemplating going the LLC + EIN route but was hoping it cleared up so I didn't have to...

I’m having the same issues and thought it would reset like it did in the past. I’m thinking it was late January last year when they reset. I am also unable to pay my eBay fees because I don’t have enough in the PayPal account and I can’t take in anymore funds! Frustrating!

PP is frustrating - they don't act very quickly at all

I check everyday and I get the frustrating "Email address cannot be used for (PP) payments at this time." message. It's 1/17 - same message. You would think this action affects their bottom line somehow by preventing people from being able to pay for items they want to buy. You would think there'd be more pep in their steps to release the people they're not sending 1099-K's. It's got to be affecting many more people than just us few posting here...

I have a very strong feeling that if accounts do reset this year, it will be on 1/27/19 which is the date they are telling users they must have their SSN added by in order to keep using their balance for purchases.

I've been monitoring my accounts closely too. The "limited" notification seems to be gone from a few but I'm still getting an error when I try to send an invoice from those accounts, so they aren't back to normal.

The only accounts I have had 100% reset on January 1st was the accounts that got requested but not limited as in, Not be able to collect more funds.

Some people report tax limited accounts getting reset end of January and as late as end of April. This was not my experience last year but we did not wait and added tax info sometime in February.

IMO, the account is toast unless you give them what the IRS wants, A tax number.

If you are just selling some random stuff, just open a new account.....

In years past I had both reset. Accounts that had only had a tax ID requested, and accounts that were fully limited for hitting 200 sales.

That's why there are posts from me here saying accounts will reset - because they've reset for me several times. With that being said there have been a lot of changes to ebay, paypal, and e-com in general lately so I don't know if things will go the same way this year.

In years past if you had your account limited and were unable to receive any more funds because of hitting the IRS threshold, the account would unlock by the end of January and you can receive funds again.

Hopefully things repeat themselves this year. I am eagerly waiting for my accounts to be allowed to sell again.

I am not sure how it is an advantage for PayPal to permanently limit you from receiving payments due to IRS thresholds, as I do recall them fighting the government on these thresholds being placed on seller accounts when the IRS first came after them several years back.

Do you recall when you were allowed to sell again on accounts that were limited and unable to sell any more items for the year?

Me personally I began selling on these accounts in the end of Jan - beginning of Feb, but I wasn't exactly checking every day waiting for the limitation to be lifted like I am this year, so I am uncertain of the exact day the limitation was lifted in years past.

I do not. Most traffic comes from our business accounts so I'm in the same boat as you - I don't exactly know when I just know I was able to start receiving payments again on tax limited accounts some time in the new year.

Like I said earlier I think the 1/27/19 "confirm your info by" date probably ties into this, somehow.

Paypal does fight for sellers but when enough tax dollars have been missed out on, the government starts forcing Paypal's hand.

I can also confirm I now have the Limited notifications in the top right of the screen disappearing from a lot of my accounts, but they are still unable to receive payments.

I also noticed if I go to the Resolution Center where it shows me my limitations, a handful of accounts have this notice:

"Were reviewing your submissions. Thanks for helping us understand your business better. Well get back to you soon"
I obviously never submitted anything, so I do not know why it says I did.

This message is where the button that says "Confirm your Tax ID number" is supposed to be.
