Tax Services for Digital and Virtual Currency Transactions

The rise of cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin, Ethereum, Binance Coin, and Dogecoin presents many challenges for businesses. Among them are finding a CPA or tax preparation and accounting firm that is knowledgeable - and experienced - in taxation issues, and laws and regulations are constantly evolving.  

Taxation of Digital and Virtual Currency 

Cryptocurrency is a form of digital or virtual payment or currency that can be exchanged online for goods and services. These exchanges use a secure computer technology platform called blockchain to validate and record transactions digitally on a digital ledger.   

Because the IRS defines virtual currency as a digital representation of value, it is treated as property for tax purposes. Therefore, whether you experience a gain or loss, it must be reported on Schedule D of IRS Form 1040. Long-term gains (assets held more than 12 months) are subject to capital gains tax rates, whereas short-term gains of less than 12 months are taxed as ordinary income.

A tax and accounting firm like Akram has the knowledge and expertise you need to ensure compliance with a complicated set of rules.
