You must show any profit from ebay sales on your return. If you were just selling your old stuff for less than you paid for it, you had no profit so do not report it. If you were buying things for resale, you report your profit, not your total sales., as income. You aren't allowed to report just the income and not the expenses.

You must. It's not even optional. If you don't, then you can be sent to prison, but will probably just be fined a lot of money. You put the money on the "business income" line of Form 1040, and on Schedule SE and either Schedule C or Schedule C-EZ. Again, it's not optional. You are not allowed to file without doing this.

The IRS is getting a bit picky about this. $2200 is chump change and indicative of you either selling your old stuff to get cash or playing at eBay as a hobby. Sales of old stuff at a loss is not income. Sales of old stuff at a gain goes on schedule D and is not considered earned income. Hobby income goes on line 21 of the 1040 and the expenses go on schedule A. It doesn't count as self-employment income and won't get you EIC either. If you try to list the income and expenses on schedule C, fine, but if you use this to get EIC or ACTC and use this income to get a refund, be advised the IRS is going to question it and want to see your receipts, business plans, etc.
