IRS 2019 Cryptocurrency Tax Guidance and FAQ
The IRS recently released their new tax FAQ and guidance for cryptocurrencies, which was the first official guidance since March 2014.
In our latest podcast, we are joined by Tyson Cross, a tax attorney who specializes in cryptocurrency taxation, to analyze this new guidance. The guidance provides new information about forks, airdrops, cost basis, and establishing fair market value. Tyson provides his expert analysis, as well as his professional opinion, on each of these topics.
With the launch of Bitcoin.Tax, CoinsTax has processed cryptocurrency tax calculations for individuals in the US, Europe and other countries across the world.
In most countries, cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin, Ethereum and Ripple, are treated as personal property and so subject to capital gains, although specific rules for capital gains treatment and rates can differ in tax jurisdictions.
There are challenges in how individuals, traders, and tax professionals calculate their profits and losses on crypto-currency trading. In the US, each trade must be reported along with any potential gains or losses. Gains and losses are summed and report as capital gains income. In addition, there are reduced rates for long-term gains (owned for more than a year) but it can be difficult to document this if and when audited.
With more than 7 years experience with cryptocurrencies, CoinsTax has deep practical knowledge and expertise in how this all works, how the exchanges report their activity, and how this is combined to create information for use in tax reporting.
