How does paypal work with upwork do they just send the money to Paypal and if you can't get project you still have to pay for taxes from upwork?

    I hope someone can answer you. However, I don't understand the context. SFAIK, I pay taxes (in the US) only on income. Lacking income (Paypal or otherwise), I expect to pay no taxes. Do you have indication otherwise?

Basically- if its income, its taxable. you will need to report it and pay appropriate taxes.

Upwork has its own payment system. i would recommend using that instead of Paypal because Upwork has a good escrow system to ensure you get paid. I have had good arbitration with Upwork also
