In my 30 years within the government, I’ve rarely seen something evolve as quickly as virtual currency or cryptocurrency. I think the Service has done a great job in regards to trying to address this emerging issue. Quite a bit of attention has been associated with it. It’s being reported on the 1040, trying to give insight as to how widely cryptocurrency has been adopted. From a compliance standpoint, I think IRS CI has done a great job in really addressing cryptocurrency as it relates to the dark web, but also in moving further in working with a number of firms to really address the potential issue of tax evasion.12 July 2021
