Course Description

Blockchain technology and cryptocurrencies such as bitcoin and ether are two trending topics in the fin-tech world. Yet, few business professionals can grasp the intricacies, opportunities and challenges posed by this new technology. This one hour webinar will teach you what block-chain is, and what you can do with it (i.e., how to treat the tax returns of your clients who are active in the cryptocurrency market). On the tax side, you will learn what “cryptocurrency” (i.e., Bitcoin) is and what the most popular use cases for cryptocurrency are. You will also learn how the U.S. federal tax system treats common property dispositions and how those rules relate to analogs in cryptocurrency. 

This session also covers current developments surrounding this topic, and especially on how to successfully navigate through tax notices such as 

  • CP200
  • Letter 6173
  • Letter 6174
