Default Form 1099-K mailed to stealth address?

Hello... I made a mistake for not updating my registered address to an accessible one on a stealth pp in time before the 1099-K got filed. All the other info is correct so no problem for me...

What I'm worried about is the physical form they sent in the mail, could the current resident of the stealth address be freaked out and call pp and in fear and that may cause a problem for me? I've removed the old stealth address from my pp now.

Do you have to opt in for them to even send a physical form? I forget because I don't remember getting one on my primary pp.



Thanks for any insights regarding this

They don't send a physical form.

Thank you, yeah I thought that was the case, it's just they sent so many emails this year "You’ll also receive this form in the postal mail soon if you haven't already" or something like that in the message, so got confused.

If they really emailed you that, that's a cause for concern. I haven't read any of the "tax forms are now available" emails in a few years. I usually just download them straight from my PP account.

Can you make a screenshot of the email so we can see?

1st (subject 2017 Form 1099-K available)


2nd (subject Reminder: Important information about your PayPal account)


I don't think I've NOT consented the e-delivery?

That 1st email was from jan 28th

Thanks for the pics. I'm going to check into the e-delivery thing later. Even when I was using my real SSN account I never got any paper 1099's in the mail.

I just lost 2 major accounts because PayPal sent the 1099k form to the stealth address and the person at the address contacted PayPal and told them that the person was not him and didnít know anything about it. This was under a Business Account with EIN but my stealth name was on it and this guy had the same name (accounts purchased from sellers on forum). PayPal limited my accounts and I called in and they told me it was limited until I could provide a photo ID and other personal information confirming to them that I was who I said I was. Even though this was a Corporation they wonít I unsuspend it until they can prove my real identity they said. They told me the reason for the suspension was the person at the address with the same name as me reported to them that they received the 1099k and someone was using their information and it wasnít him. I googled the address and name and sure enough the stealth name lives there.

If you get one, they send you an email saying it's available for download.

If you don't see an email, just go into the reporting center of your PP account. Then go to the "tax documents" section. If you sold enough in 2017 for them to make you a 1099, you'll see a link saying "1099-k" in the 2017 section.

(Just checked my 1099's for the first time and they all 3 have my LLC name. Phew.)
