IRS Commissioner: Crypto Tax Enforcement Takes Precedence

Since the IRS considers cryptocurrencies as property, according to the Commissioner they are still taxable in the cannabis industry. 

As the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) of the US continues to propose new tax regulations in order to regulate crypto investments in the United States, the most recent notification outlines the tax duties and mandates for the cannabis industry.

De Lon Harris the IRS Small Business/Self-Employed Division Commissioner, signed the warning, which underscores the government agency’s priority for ensuring Bitcoin (BTC) tax compliance between local marijuana growers, distributors, and sellers.

Commissioner Harris stated that the IRS’s top enforcement priority in the cannabis business is the usage of cryptocurrencies. The remark is timed to coincide with a recent Senate proposal from July 2021 that aims to tighten taxation and reporting laws for enterprises that trade in cryptocurrencies. Harris claims that “those who use it [cryptocurrencies] need to understand that the IRS considers it property, and there are gains that are taxable.”

Moreover, the recommendation of Harris is that renowned exchanges ought to work with cannabis businesses for the conversion of crypto into USD. Although businesses are not yet asked by the IRS to report on large cryptocurrency transactions, companies still have to conduct information reporting on transactions that are worth more than $10,000, through filing Form 8300

Some eleventh-hour modifications to the infrastructure bill are contingent upon collecting the $28 billion through the regulation of cryptocurrency transactions as well as investments. Democrats in the House of Representatives were quick to put forth new ideas on crypto taxation earlier this month which on long-term capital gains would increase the tax rate. In case of approval, a number of high-income individuals might incur a 5% crypto tax increase.

The infrastructure bill also proposes a 3.8% surtax on net investment income, raising the tax rate for certain investors to 28.8%. The wash-sale rule, which forbids investors from deducting capital gains on cryptocurrencies and other digital assets, will also be implemented under the new tax proposal. Currently, authorities in the United States suspect crypto investors of utilizing wash sales to distort their portfolio’s financial gains.
