Question by BreadCollision: eBay: Should I charge sales tax?
I want to unload a bunch of things on eBay – is the IRS going to come after me if I don’t charge sales tax? What are the rules regarding sales tax? I don’t want to become an eBay “business” – I just want to have the equivalent of an Internet “garage sale”. However, I want to follow the rules, and if the rules insist that I charge sales tax even tho I’m an informal seller, I will. My top two objectives are 1) follow the rules and 2) stay out of jail ………..LOL!
I LIVE IN ILLINOIS

You only have to pay taxes if you make more than 0 and even then you only charge sales tax to buyers living in your state. Hope that answers your question. 🙂
Good luck and happy Ebaying!
