Cryptocurrency and Taxes - Learn What the IRS says for 2018

  • Rise NY 43 West 23rd Street New York, NY, 10010 United States (map)

Tax day is coming and the government wants their cut of your crypto earnings. Are you prepared? What's the tax law around cryptocurrency and how do you stay within the law without giving it all away?

 

Join us on March 16th where you will hear from crypto tax professionals that will present their expertise on this complicated topic. 

 

Get answers to questions like:

  • Are crypto-crypto trades taxable? Can’t I use Sec 1031 like-kind exchange rules?

  • I owe a lot of taxes on my crypto trades from last year and I didn’t cash out at all.  Now my crypto is worth a lot less and I don’t have the cash to pay my taxes.  What do I do?

  • How to I estimate the value of my crypto for tax purposes?

  • Can I save on crypto taxes by running my trades through an LLC?

  • How can I lessen/eliminate my taxes on cryptocurrency taxes?

  • I developed a nifty bot that can arbitrage the price differences between exchanges. How do I get taxed on this activity?

  • I’m trading on foreign exchanges. Do I have to report this? The IRS can’t find me, right? 

  • I do crypto margin trading. How do I report this?
