If you are a merchant you have to collect sales tax on sales to buyers in your own state. If you are an individual casual seller, you don't. The reporting rules ebay is telling you about are IRS rules.

You are confusing income taxes and sales taxes. Those are the requirements for issuing you a 1099K at the end of the year for income tax purposes and have nothing to do with New York state sales taxes. As an aside, even if you are not issued a 1099K, you must report your income from your Ebay business.

if you are selling items to people in your state you need to be registered with your state sales tax agency to do so and if you are selling anything in your state you are required to register and charge and collect sales tax eBay has nothing to do with it their reference to $20000 annually is in relation to them issuing you a 1099 K which you would use for your self employment income, the two taxes are not related

1. they are correct, the only thing YOU need to worry about is income taxes. so if you sell under 20,000 a year then you are fine. 2. as for sales taxes- ebay eats all of that. that is WHY YOU PAY TO LIST ON EBAY they take full responsibility for ALL sales tax requirements.
