As millions of people across the US start to file their taxes, questions remain about how to account for crypto holdings. With the IRS paying closer attention than ever, it is important to follow proper guidance.
With the crypto markets surging over the past year, taxes have probably been far removed from the minds of most investors. However, with the filing date approaching it is important for everyone to know how to correctly fill out their forms and avoid inadvertent errors. In fact, the IRS is paying closer attention than ever to the space, as evidenced by its choice to prominently place a question about crypto holdings on the very top of the first page of a 1040.
This webinar will walk you through how the IRS approaches taxation when it comes to crypto, explain what constitutes a taxable event and provide tangible examples to guide you. It also touches on some emerging issues in the space including how to account for staking rewards, interest earned from lending activities, and even NFTs!
