Well if I buy something for $1000 and sell it used for $800 the IRS wants a 
‎cut for something I lost money on?  This will be an accounting nightmare!!!

they going to require a tax on my kids allowance?

Unfortunately, the Internal Revenue Service is "cracking down" on people who 
sell things using eBay and PayPal.  It seems that way too many persons are 
making profits selling items and not reporting them to the IRS.  It isn't 
PayPal's idea to get Social Security numbers, it is the United States 
Government's requirements.  PayPal and eBay are going to have to report sales 
figures to the government!
