STEVEN TOSCHER and MICHEL STEIN to Speak at Upcoming Webinar on New Developments in Cryptocurrency Reporting and Enforcement

We are pleased to announce that Steven Toscher and Michel Stein will be speaking at the upcoming CSTC webinar, “New Developments in Cryptocurrency Reporting and Enforcement” on Wednesday, June 9, 2021, 10:00 a.m. – 11:40 a.m. (PST).

The program will provide tax advisers and compliance professionals with a practical look at IRS guidance to calculating and reporting income and gain on cryptocurrency (e.g., Bitcoin) transactions. We will discuss the IRS position on cryptocurrency as property rather than cash, analyze IRS efforts to increase compliance and define proper reporting and the tax treatment for hard forks, “mining” and exchanging cryptocurrency. We will address recently released IRS Revenue Ruling 2019-24 and the updated FAQs regarding the taxation of cryptocurrency, with a particular focus on the recent IRS enforcement initiatives to identify virtual currency activity, how the IRS soft letter campaign fits into the voluntary disclosure practice and the risks of criminal prosecution related to unreported and improperly reported cryptocurrency transactions.
