Reporting eBay sales on your tax return

If you're wondering how to report eBay income on taxes, you can rest assured the IRS wants it to be fairly simple for taxpayers to make payments. If you make $600 or more in sales on eBay in a year, you'll receive a 1099-K. 1099 forms report the amount of self-employment income you made to the IRS, and it's required for all payers to send an eBay 1099K to them and a copy to you. The 1099-K form is sent to any self-employed individual who uses a third-party payment processor, like Paypal, Venmo or credit card companies. By January 31st, your 1099-K form should be available on the eBay platform, and you should receive one in the mail. It will be the same form that eBay sends to the IRS. If you used Paypal for your online eBay business, you should also receive a 1099-K form from Paypal. Even if you don't receive one from eBay or Paypal, you're still responsible for reporting your income on your tax return. Like every taxpayer, you'll report all your tax information on Form 1040, and you'll record any deductions on Schedule C. Freelancers and self-employed individuals need to pay their taxes quarterly if they expect to owe $1,000 or more in taxes. That means you're responsible for making these quarterly estimated IRS tax payments four times a year.

eBay business tax deductions

If you're running your eBay shop as a business, you might be eligible for business tax deductions. Running a business can be costly, and the expenses can add up quickly, but you deduct those expenses from your taxable income and save money.
