I am able to make $100 a week with a product/service I sell. I don't go through ebay or any other service besides paypal. I receive payments of $4 to $50 in my account which I set up using a family member's info. Almost all of the payments are sent as ?friends and family?. I would like to keep the family member in the dark as much as possible, but never in hot water. Does the fact that these payments are ?gifts? and not sales relinquish some of the tax burden. I don't mind paying the tax, but don't want to disclose the nature of my product to the powers that be, due to their... gray nature. Or would that matter? That is, if I have 100 payments of $10, they could be for anything right? Could my family member just add the money as income without too many questions? I haven't put 600 on the account yet this year, and am hesitant to do so. Should I make more accounts to disperse the amount? Also, If I want to withdraw some of the funds without the family member's knowledge, could I order from bestbuy or another vendor that accepts pp, or would bestbuy somehow link my shipping address with paypal? What about in store pickup? Sorry for so many questions, but I've been researching this for a while and need to get it figured out asap. Thanks in advance.
