Ask Tax Question

If I were to exchange a foreign currency, in an amount that could be 8 figures,what must I do to have that be capitol gains and not personal tax? Should I use a trust for a business or a LLC?'

It depends. It's really got nothing to do with the fact it is being converted into USD. It has to do with where the money came from (not the location, how it became yours) and your residency status and if taxes were paid on it in a foreign country. Can you provide some more detail?
