I am unemployed and play video games as a hobby, I received a 1099K from Paypal for money I won playing. Do I have to file a tax return? And if so, how do I do that?

I am a part-time student and live with my mom, she claims me on taxes

Hi!  The best way to determine if you have to file is to go to the website link below and complete the short questionnaire.   It's the best way because everyone's situation is a little different.  I wouldn't want to give you advice that turns out to be incorrect:)

See @Vickieval07 response above. 

 

How much did you receive from PayPal for your gaming activities?
