I want to only share my identity with the tax man when I write, and allow people to pay me online. How do I do this?

So I started providing free profile reviews (and writing) on a kink dating website. I am both a fairly good writer, patient and kink experienced enough to help nervous newbies get a better idea of the vocabulary of what they're looking for and how to go about asking for things like having a lady beat them.
And some of these people were grateful enough to offer compensation. And, as someone who writes professionally I kinda like getting paid. However there is always a chance that someone paying me will decide that they really, really want to get to know me.
So how do I set up a tip jar or flat rate system so they can get their receipt and I can get my small financial consideration without a deranged dude showing up at my doorstep? Bonus question- I'm pretty sure paypal might have a small issue with me using them to transfer funds if the service involves people getting 100-200 word blurbs on spanking or how they just want a nice middle class life with weekend bondage, so is there a better method for this that's classy an easy to use?
