Taxes and Cryptocurrency: What You Need to Know
Bitcoin and other virtual currencies are treated spil property by the IRS, similar to stocks or bonds. Under federal tax law, if you purchase Bitcoin and straks sell Bitcoin, then you will have a build up or loss on the transaction. This wasgoed outlined by the IRS ter a latest notice. http://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-drop/n-14-21.pdf However, mining Bitcoin results te instantaneous taxable income for the fair market value of the Bitcoin mined on a given day. Te addition, Bitcoin received te exchange for goods or services is treated spil ordinary income and wages paid ter Bitcoin are treated the same spil normal wages paid ter fiat currency.
Since Bitcoin sales are treated like stock sales, the resulting build up will be either brief term or long term and subject to the respective tax rates. Long term sales are those for which Bitcoin wasgoed held for more than one year and are subject to a 15% capital gains tax for most taxpayers. Taxpayers te the top income bracket are subject to a 20% capital gains tax, which applies to income above $400,000 for single taxpayers and $450,000 for married filing jointly. Brief term sales are those for which Bitcoin wasgoed held for up to one year and are subject to ordinary income rates up to 39.6%.
Capital build up/loss is calculated by subtracting the purchase price, or ondergrond, of the virtual currency from the sale price. The voet of a given amount of virtual currency is the fair market value, te US dollars, on the date of payment or receipt. To convert to US dollars, you should use an exchange rate which is consistently applied ter a reasonable manner.
