How Will Bitcoin And Cryptocurrency Taxed By IRS In 2022: Everything You Need To Know

If you traded in Cryptocurrency in 2021, you might wonder how it will be taxed. Virtual currencies like bitcoin and ether are treated differently by the IRS. However, a few sets of questions need to be answered to assess taxes if you have traded in crypto assets. The average investor must understand that Cryptocurrency is not like any other type of currency. Every time a citizen uses Cryptocurrency or transacts, he will have the potential to gain or lose on your tax returns.

No need to file returns if you used dollars to buy Cryptocurrency

There is a rider, though:  If a citizen has used US Dollars to buy crypto tokens in 2021, he will not have to report anything in his return. It is the position right now though the policies about crypto are rapidly evolving and could change in the future, reports the cnet.com.

Thankfully the rules to report gains and loss while executing crypto trade is reasonably straightforward. If a citizen has sold crypto tokens, he will have to report the returns. Similarly, if a person has traded one crypto with another crypto-token, he will still have to report it in his tax returns. Some apps will help you in the process. One important point which must be noted is that the above rules are for citizens of the US and resident aliens. If a citizen has made money from cryptocurrencies in foreign countries, he will have to pay taxes there.

How is the IRS handling cryptocurrency on 2021 taxes?

As in 2019, the IRS will ask for details about your Cryptocurrency. For example, the 1040 US Individual Income Tax Return form seeks details about crypto: At any time during 2021, did you receive, sell, exchange, or otherwise dispose of any financial interest in any virtual currency?”

At present, the IRS labels bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies like property. Hence one does not need to get into it on your tax return. However, you have to report if you have sold and exchanged crypto tokens for profit. If a person has been purchasing a crypto asset with dollars the whole year but has not traded in it and kept it safe in his wallet, he can give no as an answer to this question by IRS.
