Have a Tax Question? Ask a Tax Expert
Do I need to file an amended return for 2012 to report the income ? Additionally, I did not receive over a third of the income that PayPal claims I did and need to know how to deal with that matter.
Indeed it does. However, I received about half of what PayPal claims and all of it was sent to a third party, so I didnt actually realize any benefit from it. In fact, I also lost additional money when PayPal started trying to recoup the losses that they paid out to consumer victims of the scam. This has been heavily documented with law state and federal law enforcement agencies. I am also in Ch 13 and the amount PayPal claims to be owed is listed as a post-petition debt. How does all of the above change the picture ?
