IRS reminds taxpayers of crypto income reporting ahead of 2022 filing By Cointelegraph


With the deadline approaching for filing the 2022 federal income tax return, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) — an enforcement agency of United States federal tax laws — released a list of reporting requirements for the general public dealing with cryptocurrencies.

Until 2021, the IRS used the term “virtual currencies” in income tax-related reporting forms, which have been updated to “digital assets.” All U.S. citizens must answer questions about cryptocurrencies “regardless of whether they engaged in any transactions involving digital assets.”
