Hi all,

I'm about to donate an egg to friends of mine so that they can have a child (they're infertile). I will be receiving $2500 sometime this year for the service, and I suspect that I'm going to be taxed on that somehow.

Does anyone know whether this might count as income, a gift, self-employment...? I'm sure there's plenty of precedent but haven't been able to find out what it is.
