Do you have clients who transact with cryptocurrencies? If so, you’ll want to attend this session! We’ll explore various tax compliance and planning opportunities you should consider when working with your clients. The only guidance we have from the IRS on virtual currencies (also referred to as cryptocurrencies) is Notice 2014-21. Limited guidance presents challenges for tax practitioners, but also allows for some interesting planning opportunities. In this session you will:
1. Gain an understanding of how the IRS treats cryptocurrencies.
2. Discuss compliance considerations to be aware of as a tax practitioner.
3. Determine tax planning strategies to use when working with clients who transact in cryptocurrencies.
