and PayPal's info, here:
• If your activity is a HOBBY, report your income on line 21, Form 1040. You can´t deduct expenses in excess of your income, and you can only deduct qualifying expenses if you itemize deductions
• If you consider your sales on eBay as a BUSINESS, you must fill out the IRS 1040, Schedule C, at a minimum. You may deduct expenses.
• If you are selling junk from around the house, those casual sales are usually not taxable.
