Are crypto-to-crypto trades considered like-kind exchanges for the 2017 year? Or do they only apply in 2018 onwards? The IRS seems to not want to clarify this. I filed my 2017 taxes assuming the former, to be on the safer side. But I am still dumbfounded on this question.
Hello, thanks for doing the AMA.
To determine basis, do you think taxpayers are able to identify separate lots, or should they only use FIFO?
Say someone had BTC "stolen" in the entire Mt.Gox fiasco.... Could one claim that as a loss somehow?
Would crypto capital gains from a pass through LLC in which you are materially active be subject to the net investment income tax?
Are you invested in any crypto currencies yourself? For the long or short term?
Please direct me to your website if this information is available there, but am I under the correct assumption that reporting bitcoin earnings would only be at the time of a withdrawal? If no withdrawal has taken place, is reporting required?
Users, please be wary of proof. You are welcome to ask for more proof if you find it insufficient.
