Does Paypal send tax forms?

To make a long story short, one of the things my website business will be doing is sending payments (earnings) a user makes on the website through Paypal. I'm based in the U.S. and therefore have to comply with the law that says a person who makes $600 or more each year from someone has to pay taxes on it. If I end up paying a total of $600 or more to someone in a year, will Paypal automatically send that person the proper paperwork for their taxes or is there something I need to do? Keep in mind, business is done with the Paypal IDs on my site so I'm not asking for anyone's social security number or other information and I know that Paypal does have this information for all its users. Can anyone confirm for me that Paypal does this?

PayPal only provides you with the means to collect sales tax and provides some limited reporting functions.
