I have a question I need answered. I haven't started getting into the GPT sites but would like to. I am on a limited income and need to report my income month by month. When you ladies get paid for instance and you don't know what where and who you will get paid how do you keep track of everything. Also, I am not allowed to make over a certain amount how does this work with reporting taxes etc. Thank you very much.

  • When I couldn't find a job that would pay enough to cover daycare for twins, and let me have any money leftover for bills. I started looking online for stuff I could do from home and found some great places. I have made a list of places that I have used (only free ones), I know they're all legit because I don’t list them until I've been paid by them. I do have survey sites listed; only the ones that I know for sure work. The 2nd place I listed is totally different. You design and run your own jewelry web store. You don't buy inventory or anything; you make commission from the sales. Nothing to lose by looking, it’s free. You can see my list and details on these places at

  • Once you are over $600 they report it, but before that you are responsible to report the earnings. BTW my favorite gpt site is on my site if you would like to take a look!

    Best of luck!

  • Those creating GPT sites aren't getting rich and work 10 times harder than I do for much less money. I started my own business from scratch and make more of my money sitting on my butt watching movies on my PC. Right now I'm rewatching "The Secret" Brilliant.

  • Most sites would requiere to fill a W-9 form if your earnings total over 599. I guess you just have to keep track of how much you've earned so you don't go over the limit.

    My favorite websites are


    Both are excellent paying sites and simple to use. Don't hesitate to send me a message if you have any question.
    Good Luck!

  • Hey my blog has information about an excellent site that I recently joined. It's been working so far for me and I just recieved my first check (picture of it on my blog.) Also as far as taxes go and making money on this site. If you make 600 a year or more on the site.. then you have to fill out tax forms. Otherwise.. whatever you earn never has to be reported.
