I want to say it was in Rebates because he talked about rebates, but can't remember for sure.

I'm trying to do my taxes which usually isn't that difficult but I started selling on Ebay last year so need to report my sales. I have to do a Schedule C. So far it ain't fun. It's not easy...that's for sure but I'm determined to figure it out on my own.

I have some questions and remember this guy made a very helpful post about Ebay and taxes and I can't for the life of me find it. I wished I had bookmarked it.

Anyone know which thread I'm talking about? No searches bring it up for me.

Thanks.

Thanks so much for the link but that wasn't it. My Slickdeals search abilities aren't the best. I wished I had bookmarked it. The guy went into deal...wrote a long post with helpful hints. But that's ok, it may be out of date now anyway.

Since I sell my rebate items on Ebay, I wonder how you list on taxes for Ebay sales. Do you count the cost of the item or go ahead and count the cost as zero since that is what you pay after you receive the rebate. Or is there somewhere on Schedule C that allows for you to report rebates that will zero out the cost of the item. I'll have to do more research.

it looks like you were getting some good help in your last rebates thread on the subject? not sure if one of those is what you were looking for. post 10 links to this thread, so maybe that was it?

in any case it might be helpful to quote someone in your old thread if you had a followup question(s) to something that was said. then all the information is in one place Smilie

good luck!

Thanks. I swear I had forgotten about that thread. lol Dang, my memory is horrible. I'll just list cost of items sold as the price after rebate. Thanks for finding that.

Thanks also for recommendation to check over at Finance. I'll see if any good threads over there.
