Hi everyone! I've been thinking of opening an online store using yahoo or ebay. Does anyone know how this works at tax time? I'm assuming that if I actually make any money, the IRS will want to know about it. Do you think I just check the "self-employed" box and report my income that way? I'm starting to think I shoud ask a tax professional, but I live in a rural area and no one around here seems to know anything about internet business. Thanks everyone

You need to see a CPA. An internet business is not all that different from any other when it comes to paying taxes. You also can likely deduct a portion of your house expenses for operating a business out of your home but there is a lot of info you would need to know and records to keep, as the IRS watches these deductions closely.
