How much you make has nothing to do with the new law. Your income is always taxable. If you report it or not is up to you but. The 200 & $20000 are the trigger points for when the financial transaction sites are required to send out a 1099 on you. The tax laws for individuals have not changed. As other have said if you are unsure of what should be done the best thing is to get advice from a CPA.
