  1. I received a 1099 from EBay saying I received $ 400 in last September and another over $1900 in October. I have never had an account or sold or bought anything on EBay !!!!!! What do I do ?

    1. Which state are you in? Some states do require a 1099 if it’s over $600 for 2021. In this case, you do need to report it and deduct the cost of the original cost of the items. At the amount you sold, chances are you didn’t have a profit. But you are saying you never sold anything on eBay period? That means, someone has used your info to sell? You may want to contact eBay on this one.
