This session also covers current developments surrounding this topic, such as the inclusion of the virtual currency question on the front of Form 1040, how to successfully navigate through tax notices (CP2000, Letter 6173, Letter 6174, and Letter 6174-A), and tax planning opportunities.

Learning Objectives:


  • Identify bitcoin and cryptocurrencies

  • Recognize the tax implications of investing in cryptocurrency, running a mining operation, and using cryptocurrency as a payment method

  • Give examples of tips and tricks on how to serve clients with cryptocurrency

  • Outline tax planning opportunities unique to cryptocurrency
