IRS Completes Regulations for Reporting Taxes on Cryptocurrency

US Treasury Department Finalizes New Regulations for Cryptocurrency Taxes

The US Treasury Department has implemented new regulations to ensure that individuals pay the correct amount of taxes when selling cryptocurrency. Previously, taxes were required on crypto earnings, but there were no specific rules in place for the process. Now, cryptocurrency platforms will be mandated to report users’ transactions to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) in an effort to prevent tax evasion.

IRS Commissioner Danny Werfel stated, “We need to ensure digital assets are not used to hide taxable income, and these final regulations will improve detection of noncompliance in the high-risk space of digital assets.” Additionally, cryptocurrency platforms will now be required to provide users with 1099s at the end of the year, simplifying the process of reporting profits or losses on taxes.

Real estate professionals are also impacted by the new rules, as they must report the fair market value of digital assets in real estate transactions with closing dates on or after January 1, 2026. These regulations will go into effect for transactions completed in 2025, providing traders with a year to adjust to the changes.

Overall, these new regulations aim to enhance tax compliance in the digital asset space and close the tax gap related to cryptocurrency transactions. Stay informed and ensure you are compliant with the latest tax regulations when dealing with cryptocurrency.
