This question is for Robin D. Will I be audited by the IRS?

This question is for Robin D. Will I be audited by the IRS? I make money from playing an online game that is similar to World of Warcraft. The way I make money in real life is by selling the gold that I make in the game to websites that are willing to buy it for real life dollars via PayPal. Since I surpassed $20k in gross income, PayPal sent my annual 1099-K form to the IRS and I have to pay taxes on the money I've earned. I am considered self-employed and I've made close to $300,000 this year.
