Income and Investments

The growth of cryptocurrency/Bitcoin investments continues to explode.  According to a May 2021 survey, 51% of Americans who own cryptocurrency bought it for the first time within the last 12 months.  Although interest in cryptocurrency continues to grow and IRS issued more guidance on virtual currency, new investors still have questions about what to do with it and how it is taxed.

If you are new to the cryptocurrency/Bitcoin investing world, you may have questions we often hear like, “How is my cryptocurrency taxed?”, “How are my profits taxed?”, or “How much is the tax on my cryptocurrency/Bitcoin sales?”

If you have these questions don’t worry we have you covered. Check out our free Cryptocurrency Tax Interactive Calculator, that in just one screen, will answer your burning questions about your cryptocurrency/Bitcoin sales and give you an estimate of how much your sales will be taxed and much more.
