Are you paying taxes on this income?

Jeanne

If you cash out, it goes out through PayPal. PayPal will let the IRS know about money coming in, so he will be paying taxes on it. 

It's considered "miscellaneous income" by the IRS, or could be declared a hobby or even a business ... depends onhow you want to do it. I declare it as "hobby income".  Haven't reached the thresholdof needing to pay withholding on it yet.

Cool Nefertiti !! I wondered how that worked .. Thanks!

Tho SL has some things that are free, like groupgifts and dollarbies, land is rarely free. Once in a few month's ppl post on the forum and offer a piece of land for free. But this is very, very rare. Also, as mentioned, you are then reliable on that landowner. If they give up the land you are homeless once again. For building or making money you will need something more reliable. There is only one way to get land for "free". Become a premium member and you get a 512 plot on the mainland. You have to look for that yourself, some plots are very cheap, but you will still have to invest some L$ to get it. If you accept the 512 plot, you will no longer be able to get a Linden Home. This is a "free" as it gets.
