What income taxes do I have to pay from eBay?

If I sell items on eBay, do I have to pay taxes even if it is not a business?
You will need to check with your  local state laws for taxes as they relate to what you are doing. But essentially, if you are selling items on eBay, it is a business and any profit generated on sales should be included as taxable income for state and federal purposes. Visit with your tax advisor for more specifics.
