About This Course

As a CPA that specializes solely in cryptocurrency, I get hundreds of emails per week with questions on how cryptocurrency is taxed, and the impact that various types of transactions can have on your tax return. Because crypto is a relatively new asset class, there is limited tax guidance, and there lots of articles out there with conflicting information, it can seem confusing to navigate, but my goal is to make cryptocurrency taxation easy to understand.

Most people don't think about taxes until tax time; however, almost every time you engage with crypto, there is some sort of tax consequence with it. On top of that, the majority of cryptocurrency transactions are self-reported, meaning that you have to calculate the gains, losses, income, etc. by yourself. Crypto is a pretty unique asset when it comes to the tax code, and requires a lot more work when it comes to reporting compared to traditional investments, so if you are going to hold crypto, understanding the tax consequences is key.

In this course I will walk you through all of the different ways that crypto is (or isn't) taxed, show you how to report it correctly on your tax return, and go over various tax-planning strategies you can use to reduce your taxes. We will go over:

  • Trading
  • Selling
  • Spending
  • Buying
  • Transferring
  • Lending
  • Defi
  • Mining
  • Forks
  • Airdrops
  • Staking
  • Masternodes
  • Income
  • Gifting
  • Donating
  • Token swaps
  • Lost coins
  • Like-kind exchanges
  • Margin trading
  • 1099s
  • Consolidating your records
  • Reconciliation
  • Missing records
  • Tax notices and letters
  • FBARs
  • Loss harvesting
  • Accounting methods
  • Retirement
  • Tax tables
  • And more!

I provide a ton of examples to help you understand all of the tax impacts, and demonstrate how your day to day decisions may impact your taxes in the long run.

I believe that knowledge is power, especially when it comes to your finances, so after taking this class, you will be able to confidently manage your crypto taxes, avoid costly errors, and eliminate surprises at tax time. You will also walk away with various tax-planning strategies that you can implement alongside your trading strategies, in order to get the most out of your crypto.

Whether you have been in crypto from the beginning or are brand new, whether you're a big holder or a small one, whether you're up to date on your crypto taxes or not, this course is for you. I have seen it all, and I am confident that everyone can learn something useful from this course. I hope to see you inside!
