Crypto Companies Will Report Transactions Over $10,000 To IRS Under Proposed Tax Pressure To Help Fund US Infrastructure Plan |  Currency News |  Financial and  News News

Both sides of the aisle have been pushing for new crypto-tax measures after trading in cryptocurrencies took off over the past year. The price of the biggest digital currency, bitcoin, has risen about 267% over the past 12 months to stand at about $39,971 on Wednesday. “It is financed through a combination of redirecting unspent emergency relief funds, targeted corporate user fees, strengthening tax enforcement when it comes to crypto currencies, and other bipartisan measures, in addition to the revenue generated from higher economic growth as a result of the investments,” the White House said. The debate has centered on rules for reporting trading and for taxation of digital assets.

The tightened regulations could bring in as much as $28 billion to offset parts of the $550 billion infrastructure deal, Bloomberg reported. The proposed measures call for crypto brokerages and exchanges to face heightened reporting requirements for transactions of all digital assets, including cryptocurrencies, and businesses would have to give details on transactions of $10,000 or more to the IRS, the report said. A bipartisan deal agreed by senators and President Biden late Wednesday put forward the measures to step up tax enforcement around digital assets, a last-minute addition to the infrastructure bill.

The text of the infrastructure bill has not been released, but in a factsheet published Wednesday, the White House noted that a crackdown on cryptocurrency will be part of its strategy to raise money to pay for the spending involved.
Crypto businesses will report transactions above $10,000 to the Internal Revenue Service under proposed crypto tax regulations that aim to raise funds to finance the US infrastructure plan.

Hours after the bipartisan deal was struck, and the crypto tax regulation was added, the Senate voted to begin considering the bill. It foresees spending $550 billion on US infrastructure over the next eight years on roads and bridges, high-speed internet, public transport, electric vehicles, airports and shipping ports, among other areas. Under current IRS guidelines, digital currencies are treated as assets, and US citizens are obliged to report the proceeds of trading under the capital gains tax framework. Enforcement has proved to be difficult due to a lack of relevant rules.

Earlier this year, the US Treasury Department pushed for crypto transfers above $10,000 to be reported to the IRS, in the same way cash transactions above that threshold are. Last week, Treasury Secretary Yellen called for tighter regulation of stablecoins.
“Everybody’s been talking about the appropriate way to provide more reporting in particular, and that leads to better compliance,” said Rob Portman, Republican senator for Ohio, according to the Bloomberg report.
