How should I file taxes if I ship American products overseas? 2 Answers as of June 17, 2011

Is it legal to buy goods and computer parts (American made) from ebay and Amazon the ship it to overseas? my friend has a store he will give me a commission from each shipment that I send him, I want to be legal that's why I’m asking and I want the IRS to know so I can file what I made end of the year. Again, my question is: is it legal to buy from USA online and ship it to overseas? Thank you very much.

As long as the sale doesn't violate our export laws you should be fine. Generally, even if you did violate a law as long as you accurately report your income and expenses the IRS will not care.
