F-1留學生在美國eBay拍賣要繳稅嗎?

我是在美國讀大學持F-1 Visa的留學生

我現在在eBay拍賣收入有 USD1000+ 左右

最近突然想到我是已經滿18歲的留學生

在美國eBay上拍賣沒有繳稅

(想說美國政府應該不會知道我這個小留學生在eBay這麼廣大的平台上賣一點點東西)

Visa會不會被沒收然後遣返回台啊?

真的很擔心!!

請有經驗的人或了解留學生的人幫忙回答

已更新項目:

那假如我是想把自己的收藏賣掉呢?

ex: 我有搜集小卡的習慣 所以我會買一整套把自己想要的小卡抽出來 再把不想要的賣掉也不行嗎?

再問一個問題

假如我回到台灣再賣一些價錢比較高的東西

這樣不是在美國的領土上也會犯法嗎?

    The answer is yes.

    This happened before - Your visa can be revoked. You can be deported and banned permanently.

    The issue is your exact purpose as a seller. The U.S. Government does not prohibit foreigners using eBay (or similar platforms). However, using eBay with the intention to generate profits, you have engaged self-employment. In that case, you will need proper authorization from USCIS.

    For example, selling an iPhone you previously used will be fine. However, selling a new iPhone at a premium will be a trouble.

    Based on your information, it is very likely that you have been violated your term of staying.

    It will be a hobby. So it will be allowable.

    For detail, you can refer to here:

    The answer is no.

    You are bound with the U.S. law only if you are in the U.S. or you maintain a tier with the U.S.
