I live in Texas and would like to sell a few things on eBay.

I live in Texas and would like to sell a few things on eBay. I'm not trying to make it into a business at this time, but I read that since I live in Texas I need to get a state tax id, because I have to charge Texas customers, sales tax. I applied for one, and just put "home- eBay" as my business name. I wasn't sure if that was the right thing to do, please help. Also, I'm not sure what I need/can report when I file taxes. Hope this makes sense. Thanks

I live in Kansas an am opening an internet sales company. I see that Texas has no corporate income taxes. Furthermore, the sales tax in some counties is lower than anything in Kansas. I have confirmed that Texas is a state that will allow you to use a PO box as a company's address.UPS stores allow you to open a PO box that has an address that looks just like a physical address.Can you think of any adverse taxation that may result if I base my LLC out of an address in Texas while living in Kansas?Thank you.
