Because information about cryptocurrency users is stored in an encrypted form, there is a level of anonymity to virtual currency transactions. Some taxpayers may be tempted to take advantage of the lack of reporting documents and hide these transactions from the IRS. Failure to report taxable transactions can result in penalties and possible criminal charges.
The IRS states that "transactions in virtual currencies can be difficult to trace and have an inherently pseudo-anonymous aspect", indicating that cryptocurrency transactions are not entirely anonymous.
*In 2016, the IRS issued a "John Doe" summons on all U.S. Coinbase customers who transferred Bitcoin from 2013 to 2015. The IRS uses this type of summons to acquire information from a third party about a person or persons whose name is unknown at the time the summons is issued.
At the time of the summons, approximately 800 to 900 taxpayers had reported Bitcoin gains on their tax returns, but more than 14,000 Coinbase users had each participated in Bitcoin transactions totaling $20,000 or more in the indicated years. That suggested that a significant number of Coinbase users were not reporting their Bitcoin gains.
In February 2018, Coinbase notified approximately 13,000 customers that it will comply and release specific data about their identity and transactions.” Continued on next picture.
“In general, people are not drawn to perfection in others. People are drawn to shared interests, shared problems, and an individual’s life energy. Humans connect with humans. Hiding one’s humanity and trying to project an image of perfection makes a person vague, slippery, lifeless, and uninteresting.”
All that being said, after years of hiding away and working hard on my all of my businesses/blogs, my health, my fitness, my personal development, my SOUL, it’s time to start LIVING again.✌🏻😌❤️🏝🍻 #ascension

Continue basis of cryptocurrency acquired at different times.
3) 1099 reporting requirement.
1099-Misc. A person who is a course of a trade or business makes a payment of $600 or more in a taxable year to an independent contractor for the performance of services is required to report the debt to IRS and the payee on Form 1099-Misc, regardless of the form of payment. Payment of cryptocurrency needed to be published on Form 1099-Misc should be reported using FMV of the cryptocurrency in US dollars as of the date of payment.
4) 1099-K. Additionally, third-party processors who settle cryptocurrency transactions are required to issue Form 1099-K.
5) Using cryptocurrency to payroll.
Employers sending cryptocurrency as compensation would likely record all calculations in the functional currency (US dollars) and then, after all, withholding amounts are subtracted, the net cost of the check is paid out in cryptocurrency based on the market exchange rate at the time. The IRS will not accept cryptocurrency in payment of payroll taxes. The net pay can be paid in cryptocurrency, but taxes will have to be paid in dollars.

Road trip anyone? Where are you headed this week? #Sequoia
Ready for the weekend?
I know I'm really excited and you know why?
Tomorrow I'll be playing in the snow for the first time in my life!
Yeah, you read that right...
After 27 years on this planet and even after literally traveling around the world, I still don't know what snow feels like😅...
I can't wait for tomorrow!
When was the last time you did something for the first time?
Cheers to an amazing weekend and I'll see you around 🍻.
The rich flavor of pancetta goes hand in hand with the sweetness of the butternut squash. Like everything else in life, it is all about balance. New #cheesewheel fresh spaghetti, creamy butternutsquash sauce, pancetta.

Beep beep💕. We’re cruisin into Fall like ✨😅•
Our favorite moment from this Sunday... cruising around #SunsetCliffs! It’s a Vespa’s playground... the road hugs tightly to the cliff, and it’s easy to see where sections have fallen and eroded into the waves below. It’s spectacular, and a favorite spot to ocean gaze, and walk/hike. Definitely a San Diego #mustdo! •
Ps—sadly this is NOT an action shot😆. I actually have no idea how to drive my new bestie! It was an incredible bday present (thank you, Evan!!).. but to be honest I’m scared to move her😬. To those who ride scooters.. any tips on how best to dive in? Better to learn here, before we’re dodging traffic in Thailand, right 😜?! For now I’ll just hold on and squeal! •
