Cryptocurrencies are considered very secure because they use strong cryptography to verify the transfer of assets. This webinar reviews what cryptocurrency is and how to report it. The IRS has special requirements for trading cryptocurrency and for taxpayers selling or exchanging virtual currencies. We’ll also cover the nuances of the new virtual currency disclosure question on the Form 1040.
