if i wanted to start my own youtube channel or my own ebay store and i make money from those endeavors, when it comes time to do taxes, would my tax accountant (hypothetically, let's say H&R Block) see what kinds of videos i produce or what products i sell? thanks.

sdifox, not sure i understand your response and it didn't answer my question.
i never said i wouldn't pay or report my income/taxes.
it's simply a question of whether i would do the taxes myself or outsource it.
my question still remains.

Your question was if the tax preparer will look at your YouTube videos. The answer is they don't care. They file based on the information you provide them. You are ultimately liable for whatever IRS decides you are violating.

Going by your join date you have to be at least late twenties, how do you not know this?

you don't want to mess with the IRS. even the joker knows you don't mess with the IRS.


yes, you'd report your income from those (1099 i think?)
