Internet businesses and SIC classification.

Could, for example http://www.epinions.com and http://www.justanswer.com
be considered the same business, and what industry group might they be
in? Epinions.com is "obviously" (2007) class 711510 (Independent
artists, writers, & performers); the Tax section of http://www.justanswer.com
_might_ be class 541213 (tax preparation services), although I'm not
convinced, but the I can't place the homework support sections of
JustAnswer anywhere. (The further question of whether an "expert" in
more than one section of JustAnswer can logically separate his/her
income into the respective groupings, if not itemized by the
provider.)

[Note to the moderator: This is a question about my personal return,
but I consider it inappropriate to advertise in this group. If the
fact that it's me is relevant and considered inappropriate, please
replace Epinions by one one of the defunct creative writing sites, and
justanswer by Google Answers (also now defuct).]

The 6-digit business classification code is strictly used for
statistical purposes, so don't sweat it too much. IRS instructors
advise us (AARP volunteers) to attempt to come as close as possible, but
not to waste too much time trying to achieve perfection. Often, the
general "Misc" for the overall type of business is acceptable.
