Does anybody understand taxes on Ebay

Rate this Entry
Ive decided to seriously thin the herd and only make future purchases with funds from what I can sell. Kinda keeping my hobby spending under control.

Now there has been a ton of changes lately to taxes for internet sales and I frankly do not understand it.

From what I can tell currently sellers are responsible to collect and pay tax.. This month that will change and for a fee ebay/paypal will collect and pay tax?

Am I missing something?

    It would be handy if they took out taxes. A couple years ago i got screwed over by my state for taxes for selling an estate lot of a friend who passed away. Wish i had just given the stuff away.

    Seems as of just recently Ebay or Paypal is automatically collecting the tax. Though the description is not a clear as I would hope on the site.
