Description :

Virtual currency use is increasing, and roughly 3 in 10 Americans younger than age 30 indicate they have invested in, traded, or used a virtual currency, such as Bitcoin or Ethereum. As a result, tax preparers are more likely than ever to encounter clients who have engaged in one or more virtual currency transactions during the year and who may have taxable income as a result. Tax Treatment of Virtual Currency briefly discusses the nature of virtual currency, how transactions in virtual currency occur and are recorded, and the tax treatment to which they are subject.
