New Laws for 2022

A new year brings new laws. Some laws you may be interested in are the new requirements for payment processors like Venmo to report transactions for users who receive $600 or more in a year (see our guide What Transactions Must be Reported to the IRS?); and the new protection against some surprise medical bills (see our Guide to Healthcare Laws).

And while this one isn’t new as of this year, the “right to repair” your own devices got a recent boost of confidence a few months ago when the FTC voted to enforce it. See more about Laws for Consumers.
