Virtual Currency And Taxes – The View Of The United States Internal Revenue Service

Internal Revenue Service Notice 2014-21

Section   1. Purpose

This notice describes how existing general tax principles apply to transactions using virtual currency. The notice provides this guidance in the form of answers to frequently asked questions.

Section   2. Background

The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) is aware that “virtual currency” may be used to pay for goods or services, or held for investment. Virtual currency is a digital representation of value that functions as a medium of exchange, a unit of account, and/or a store of value. In some environments, it operates like “real” currency — i.e., the coin and paper money of the United States or of any other country that is designated as legal tender, circulates, and is customarily used and accepted as a medium of exchange in the country of issuance — but it does not have legal tender status in any jurisdiction.

A Secret Few Know About A Graduate Tax Degree

While speaking to the Dean of a graduate tax program recently, I shared with them an important fact. The majority of corporations, public accounting, and law firms all require a graduate tax degree to get through the front door to interview today (or they want to see you are enrolled in a graduate tax program).  If you have a graduate tax degree like an MST, MLST or an LL.M, you made a great career decision already as these tax professionals are the ones who are being hired by major firms today.   Read more

Message To President Trump From A Concerned Retired Tax Executive

TaxConnections Members provide valuable insight into tax reform proposals. As these new tax proposals make their way through the House and the Senate, it is important to learn from highly experienced tax experts who have their eyes on the implications of any changes proposed or made.

Tax professionals are the people you can trust who understand these tax proposals. There is no better expert to look to than a retired tax expert like Do Amirian who recently sent me a copy of his letter to President Trump regarding Tax Reform Per House Bill (62% Increase for the elderly).  Retired tax executives are people who have the time and experience to see through the consequences of any new tax proposals. We need to learn from years of tax expertise!

Kat Jennings, TaxConnections CEO

——————————————————————————————————

Honorable President Trump,

The House will have significant adverse tax impact on the elderly, with significant medical expenses because of the elimination of the medical expense deduction.

For example, I, and my spouse Violet, will experience a federal tax increase of 62% under the House bill because of the elimination of the medical expense deduction.

Such a tax increase, an incredible 62%, is unconscionable under any standard of fairness.

Mr. President, please retain this critical deduction for the elderly, who count in the tens of millions of individuals.

Respectfully and success with your Administration,

Dro Amirian

Retired Corporate Tax Executive

Los Angeles, California
