Hello, I noticed on the E-bay listings there is a section to charge taxes, I am not a business, only selling personal items of mine do I need to charge people taxes ?
Thank you ,

When selling used personal items, there is no need to collect and remit tax.
Only GST/HST registered sellers are allowed to collect and remit taxes.

Hi thank you for the information, I forgot to ask you if any of my e-bay profits need to be reported to the CRA if not a business.

If you sell used personal items, you obviously do not make a profit, do you?
As such there is nothing to report.
On the other hand if you were to sell a personal stamp or coin collection (for example) for much more than you paid, there could be a tax liability.
