Crypto Taxes: Here’s What You Need To Know

How to Take Care of your Crypto Taxes

Atlanta, GA – Thursday, December 30, 2021 – (Noticias Newswire) - Cryptocurrency is considered "property" for federal income tax purposes, meaning the IRS treats it as a capital asset. This means the crypto taxes you pay are the same as the taxes you might owe when realizing a gain or loss on the sale or exchange of a capital asset. This and other crypto taxes tips are shared by Daniel Ahart Tax Service on its website

When Do You Owe Taxes On Your Crypto?

As seen in the IRS virtual currency guidance, the following are all considered taxable events for cryptocurrency:

  • Trading crypto to fiat currency like the US dollar
  • Trading one crypto for another cryptocurrency
  • Spending crypto to purchase goods or services
  • Earning crypto as income

However, you don’t trigger a taxable event when you buy and hold crypto, or when you transfer crypto from one wallet you own to another wallet you own,” says Daniel Ahart, chief tax officer at the tax preparation company Daniel Ahart Tax Service®
