Donald Trump signed a decree, according to which, activities with crypto-currencies at the territory of the United States will be taxed.
But There is one trick here. The American tax still in In 2014 I decided that the bitcoins should be taxed. Say, it is more a property than a currency . By the essence of everything that Trump did - this closed the last loophole on circumvention of taxes. Earlier the owner of a crypto currency could once in year to conduct an " equivalent exchange " operation for another crypto currency, an art object or a real estate same value and to avoid taxes. The there was the main thing - not change investments in money.
The new amendments virtually abolish " exchange-like operations. " Now for each operation on exchange of crypto-currencies, the parties will have to pay income tax. In addition, the owners of bitcoins and other foreign currency deposits will be subject to income tax in 10% - 37% in depending on income level of the owner. Bitcoins that are stored on For more than a year, a long-term tax of 24% on capital gains.
AT in general, everything looks pretty harsh. Another issue in that few of the owners crypto-currency is burning desire to pay taxes. Thank you conditional anonymity of transactions. TO example, on data of the Internal Revenue Service of the United States, the annual tax on bitcoins in The country pays no more than 500 people. How will catch the offenders - Trump did not report. A simple wall can not get off here.
