January 1 if you get paid via paypal (or similar vendor) for selling an item online they are required to send info on that sale to the IRS so you can get taxed on the money you made. No idea on if you have the original receipt and can show you lost money on this deal if you still have to pay. I kinda think that's not going to be an option. So if I have a used dvd player and sell it on ebay for forty bucks.... that's forty bucks of taxable income. Ebay, Agon, etc... are gonna get clobbered by this. I sold a two thousand dollar preamp yesterday, I'm selling ALL my spare gear this month. So if you've got gear you've been meaning to sell.... do it before January 1.
