I was wondering if I sell some things on eBay or any sites like that and just profit a few hundred dollars, do I have to file that profit when i do my taxes every year? I was thinking I didn't have to but for some reason someone told me I an supposed to..? Thank you for your help in advance.

So you saying any profit what so ever? If I purchase something for cheap or almost nothing and I make any money, I have to report it? How do I get the W-2 for that?

I called H&R block and they told me that I only need to report it if I'm doing it to make a profit on purpose such as buying products TO sell. If I'm doing it because I'm selling my unwanted stuff or stuff my friends/family gave me I don't have to report it according to them. Then again I think every state could be different?
You received bad advice. See page 35 of IRS Pub 525, under Sale of personal items.
