Cryptocurrency and Blockchain Technology

The Internal Revenue Code (IRS Notice 2014-21), defines cryptocurrencies as property similar to stocks and bonds. Virtual currencies require more complicated tax reporting than other types of investments. Trading, mining, and accepting cryptocurrencies are required to be included in your tax return.  Some of these may also be considered foreign financial accounts.
