|I sold my first domain! Do I have to pay taxes?|
Sold for under $600

So I thought I'd try my hand at picking up dropped domains. I used Pool.com and ended up getting what I thought was a pretty decent domain for $30 bucks.
I then emailed people I thought would be interested in the domain and ended up selling it on Sedo today for $500!
Now I'm wondering, since this under $600, do I have to pay taxes on it?

(Based on U.S. tax law- YMMV.)
It's factored into all the other revenue/expenses associated with your business. If you do nothing else, you've made a profit of $470.
Are you required to pay taxes on it? Maybe. (It depends on your other income/deductions.)
Is the IRS going to know about it if you don't report it? Doubtful.
