This course is a deeper dive into the complex side of cryptocurrency taxation, including mining, staking, forks, airdrops, DeFi swaps, yield farming, liquidity pools, and more. With little to no guidance in these areas, we discuss existing tax law and how best to apply it to cryptocurrency situations. We also cover using the blockchain itself to extract transactions and tools that can help in that process.

Learning Objectives

  • Explain the tax law principles relating to cryptocurrency described in existing IRS guidance
  • Analyze the taxation of complex cryptocurrency situations
  • Identify cryptocurrency transactions in need of additional guidance
  • Evaluate options for clients with cryptocurrency transactions that have little-to-no guidance
