I think we can all agree that tax season is one of the most exciting, stressful, and often overwhelming times of the year for tax professionals and accountants. From the IRS' changing guidelines, clients' changing tax situations, and now, new asset classes like cryptocurrencies, decentralized financial products, and NFTs. However, understanding crypto tax doesn't have to be hard.

How many tax filers have cryptocurrencies?

The IRS expects that 18 to 21+ million people in the US alone will need to file some sort of cryptocurrency transaction in their returns this year. In reality, the number of cryptocurrency transactions and individuals that need to report that information is unknown and could be much larger than the IRS's estimation. Regardless of what the real number is, the reality of the matter is that increasingly, tax professionals and tax practices are going to have to start processing cryptocurrency transactions as part of their annual tax preparation process.

Some practices are positioning themselves as crypto tax experts, capable of handling any and all kinds of cryptocurrency and NFT transactions for their clients. This is providing them a competitive edge to younger and more technically diverse clientele looking for tax professionals that understand their unique situations.

How your tax practice can compete in crypto

But how can you compete? In reality, cryptocurrency and the idea of decentralized finance is complicated and that also means that the tax and accounting situations that surround the space are also unique. Manually sorting through client's cryptocurrency transactions and holding is no easy task, especially when you consider that some clients can have made transactions across a wide array of platforms, hold crypto in private wallets, and bought and sold a number of things with the new digital currency.
