New law comes into effect for 2023, goods or services transactions on paypal, venmo, or other 3rd party payment processing networks will result in a 1099-K being sent you and the IRS if you do more than $600 of such transactions in one year. The $ amount on the 1099-K is reported as income, there is no provision for declaring the cost basis of the goods at the time the transaction takes place. Previously, you had to do $20k a year or 200+ transactions a year to get a 1099-K.

If there is a "mistake", you are supposed to contact the issuer of the 1099-K to correct things, never mind the structural mistake where the law assumes every item's cost basis is zero. There is no explanation for how paypal/venmo is supposed to know which transactions are services or for-profit goods, so I assume that when you use friends&family its considered non-profit, everything else is hassle time.

Pretty hard to turn over your quiver without running afoul of this.

Something I've always thought was pretty shitty is when states charge taxes on eBay transactions automatically, or even for the sales of a used car. It's effectively double taxation! If the state gets 10% on something you bought for $100, used a while, then sell for $70, they are collecting $18 instead of $10. Nice racket...
