Request to send all reimbursement payments to paypal as PERSONAL

Symbiosis PDX

Posted on April 15, 2022

Hello Leen,

I was talking with paypal today and it looks like the all for climate reimbursment payments are coming in as "goods and services" payments to paypal, which triggers a tax reporting requirement. Reimbursements are not goods and services, so they should be paid as PERSONAL/gift payments in order to not trigger tax reporting requirements. This can create trouble for our volunteers who may get audited as a result. They will be able to prove their innocence during an audit but its an extra hassle. Can you change the payment type from now on?
