Delay Taxes on Bitcoin Gains Until 2027! (

In the recent tax reform bill, Congress included a provision to incentivize investment in low-income communities. The new provision allows for delay of taxes on income from the sale of property (such as BTC) if you re-invest the gains into a Qualified Opportunity Fund within 6 months (180 days). This allows you to cash out your BTC profit, reinvest the sale proceeds, and delay paying any taxes on the gain from the original sale until 2027 (2026 tax year). More information to come, but to…

Arizona Plans on Accepting Bitcoin as legal means of Payments for taxes (

The state of Arizona has initiated a legal process seeking the approval of a law that would allow its citizens the use of cryptocurrencies to comply with the payment of their taxes in a measure that apparently seeks to facilitate financial operations and provide more options and comfort for taxpayers. In this way, those who have funds in cryptocurrencies would not have to go through third parties to change their funds in order to be able to pay. For now, the currencies that they expect to…


Hi /r/Bitcoin! I quit my job to start Cointaxes to answer questions about taxes and digital currencies so you can have confidence even if you’re not a HODLer! Sharing our first comprehensive article on the Coinbase & Gemini 1099-K. Would love your input on ANY other topics or questions! :)

Hi /r/Bitcoin! Thank you for reading this.

I felt the world of digital currencies is a bit too uncertain, so I want to do what I can to create more confidence and certainty! Please let me know if you have any questions or comments (I'll probably respond to every comment here!)

Check out our first comprehensive article on the Coinbase / Gemini 1099-K

Some "fun" facts you may not know about digital currency taxes

Here's two quick "fun" facts you may not know. We will be posting in-depth articles on these, too. Consider subscribing to our newsletter to hear first when they've been published!

  • Non-deductible personal loss: You should never exchange your digital currency directly for ANY goods or services. If you happen to have a loss on that trade, it will be non-deductable as capital gains losses ONLY apply to "investment" not "personal use" activity. You can read more about this on Forbes, Time and the IRS website.

  • FBAR requirements: This isn't explicitly tax related, actually, but a LOT of my US friends do not know about this important filing. If you ever on a single day, even, held $ 10,000 USD worth of value overseas (Binance, for example), you must meet your FBAR online filing requirements. The penalties can be severe for failure to disclose. The deadline is April 15, but it will be extended to October 15 if you fail to file on time. You can read more about this on official government sites General FBAR information, FBAR FAQS (not super helpful IMO) and the online form itself.
