    In case of making 20k+ a year of my making money idea, when going to fill tax form, how can I declare it, like "income from home" "home work" "internet marketing" I just ask if selling social media services is legal and how to report the income made with it into tax form in case that I get to make 20K+ year

    I can't advise you from a tax perspective as I am not from the US and don't know how it works but I would presume that income would be classed as self employment.

    If you mean Social Media services as in followers, likes, tweets etc. then these are completely legal to sell and they are only against the Social Media company's terms of service that you can't do it.

    if you use paypal they will do this all for you
    claim your tax as self employee working from home you do online marketing
    what you planning to do its legit as long as you present it legit you can simply claim you reselling popular services and they really don't even care how you make $ as long as you pay tax in time from your income

    you can go local court house and file paper for LLC license to give you that extra legitimate look if you want

    What you need to do here is considering a consultation with a tax accountant.

    This will answer your questions and gets you smart recommendations you know.

    I wasnt taliking about the tax consultant, im talking about cops, irs, they will want to know from where is the money coming from, cuz an 15 years old making lots of money from home and declare them as internet marketing, and dont have any trademarks of everything running on my name will be so suspicious

    its doesn't work like that

    the way it works lets say you from California you have federal tax and you have state tax
    so lets say federal its 35% everywhere + your state tax 20%
    so total in taxes you pay 55% of your income

    so if you sold 20k$ worth of services whatever you selling no one really cares nor cops nor IRS not even FBI no one really give a F... of what you selling you can BS this how you wan when they ask wheres money from as no one will be checking this unless you got audited

    you get audited when you think you smarter then IRS

    anyway back to the story you have to pay 55% of your 20k sells
    no paypal brakes it all down for you

    20k in sells
    5k in witraws to your bank (your profit)
    10k in sending to others paypal (this its your business expanse)
    5k in fees/disputes/charge-backs other bs (business expanses)

    now your profit of 20k growth its only 5k now of this 5k you pay your 55% tax

    and yes the best advice you got here its to find local PRO TAX guy who handles taxes for people either for small % of your amount or fixed rate the ones that asked fixed rate they the best way to go as its always cheaper

    now you can talk to them even if you 10 years old because in USA you technically can legally work and file your own taxes when you 16+ years old

    and last in a list its no one cares of how you make money as long its all documentation on papers by your bank and your bank approves those money
    in your case its paypal if paypal don't block your account after you made first 3-5k then you have green light to make as much as you want and cops/fbi/cie/kgb/irs and others agency's will never ask you wheres money from
    unless muhamed transfer you some dirty stuff ^^ but then no one protected from such stuff so good luck buddy hope I answered all your questions
    so go make that cash now ))
