Never. ACH or wire. Checks from only very trusted clients.
If he was an employee, perhaps. Last time I looked at GAAP, BTC could be characterized as an asset, subject to FMV calcs. If his entity is an accrual-method accounter, it could also capture any losses.That is something I never even thought about - you get paid in crypto and the IRS is going to tax you on what it was worth THAT DAY.
They're also astutely avoiding the question of how FTX got its absurd valuation and how that valuation was used to support other investor activities.
Earth to Reporters: Why Is No One Asking SBF What Happened to the $3.3 Billion He Borrowed? | naked capitalismJournalists are ignoring an obvious and damaging line of questioning with SBF. Of course, the "damaging" part may be why they are punting.www.nakedcapitalism.com
in my experience, domestic wire takes 4-6 hours if sent in morning. ACH is sometimes just a few minutes, sometimes a few days. I have occasionally used paypal invoicing, despite the extra fees. Much quicker. Not holding my breath on FEDNOW being useful until 2024 at earliest.Agreed, but you'll be happy when FedNow comes on line. ACH only dates to the freakin' 1960s. It is older than commercial DRAM. FedNow is going to credit you in a few seconds not days. It should go live next May.
Depends on the platform they're on. Folks on a DEX can likely avoid taxes under the assumption that the IRS won't have insight into their crypto related tax liability. Anyone on a CEX, especially those licensed in the US, will probably have to deal with it. Some of the financial products like staking, liquidity pools, and automated market makers can generate really annoying tax obligations when it comes time to report, especially if there's not native support for that purpose.how many youngsters, who thought they made a killing on crypto even after some losses, will be surprised by what they owe in taxes?
In this case we are talking an NFL player who took his salary in BitCoin.If he was an employee, perhaps.
Not legal advice, not tax advice, I'm not your lawyer, etc. etc. etc.
Generally yes, but the concept of ownership in the stock market is beyond convoluted. Custodial arrangements often come with a reduction to shareholder rights. Overvoting is easy evidence of this.At least a stock is ownership in *something*, you can buy blue chips or penny stocks depending on how quick you want to go broke.
Thanks! I learned my lesson years ago thinking I could make some extra money on a tax obligation before year end. Sure couldn't. The IRS makes the ATF seem amicable in comparison.Good luck with the audit

Yeah, I had the fortune to learn that lesson during the chaos of the Trump election with an examiner who hated him. We bonded over it, and I ended up with a 0$ adjustment in early 2017. From then on, any deduction taken must be able to be defended and proved 'in the room'...Thanks!

The problem is that anything on a blockchain- Ethereum chain or whatever blockchain- is permanent. It's actually the opposite of easy to hide. As soon as the FBI got some computer nerds that knew about blockchain and Bitcoin they were able to roll up all kinds of fools who thought that the Silk Road was Anonymous and that their Bitcoin meant they were untouchable. Once a coin is created on the Chain you can just follow it around and see who it gets moved to. It's ludicrous. It's actually probably easier to hide dodgy bags of cash. Using an nft to launder money? Anybody who transfers or sells or does anything with that nft will permanently have their hands on itThe IRS asks you if you have crypto holdings. You can lie and probably get away with it depending on how you are holding them. For awhile. Eventually you'll want to spend it and then they'll be on you like white on rice.
