I know as of last year, Paypal has been requiring that you submit your SSN so they can send you a 1099 form if you make over 20,000/ 200 sales on ebay. But I heard rumors that thye are going to be doing this for everybody this year. Is this true? Because I'm only a very casual seller on ebay, and don't make 2,000, let alone 20,000. Since I'm only selling off stuff like duplicate stamps, I don't make a profit anyway. So I don't want to be charged taxes on that income.
