Description

This course presents an overview of blockchain and the tax implication of cryptocurrency transactions. The IRS has provided some recent guidance, but potentially conflicting pronouncements by other regulatory agencies have created uncertainty on reporting issues. The practitioner will be helped to understand when a taxable transaction has occurred and what reports to file to satisfy IRS requirements. We will also identify tax traps for the unwary. This information is suitable for Corporate tax and finance executives, directors, managers and staff, CPAs, Enrolled Agents, accountants, attorneys and business/financial advisors who work with and advise individuals or businesses that use or invest in cryptocurrency. All in-house and public practice professionals involved with tax compliance and planning will benefit from this timely and insightful seminar.
