Cryptocurrency Tax Issues
Cryptocurrency, which represents a group of novel technologies, presents challenges in many areas of law. Because it doesn’t fit into traditional definitions of currency, commodity, or property, the U.S. tax law doesn’t provide much clarity over how to determine if and when a transaction in cryptocurrency gives rise to a taxable event, how to calculate any gain or loss from such event, and surrounding compliance obligations.
IPB attorneys are at the forefront of this emerging field – advising clients, writing, speaking, and advocating for how the government should tax this new technology. Our attorneys apply their expert knowledge of federal, international, and individual taxation to advise on the many challenging aspects of taxation of cryptocurrency. As this technology continues to evolve, our attorneys will remain on the forefront as leaders of this exciting and emerging area of the economy.
