This new system of the IRS is reportedly intended to improve the agency’s ability to detect any undeclared taxable income.
According to Neuman, for individuals whose incomes come from steady jobs, the new rules established by the IRS will most likely not make any much difference. This is because, since the 1940s, the IRS receives the same information from employers about incomes that go on W-2 and 1099 forms. However, for incomes that come from side hustles 2023 like cleaning houses or catering from one’s own kitchen in exchange for cash, employers must report any income to the IRS for tax purposes.
