Has anyone here been fucked over for not paying taxes on crypto gains?

>> No.13604003

He is cute desu

>> No.13604082

we'll find out. I submitted a tax extension for 2017 crypto gains with turbo tax. I lowballed my predicted figure to be 30k.

Still haven't paid a dime. Didn't even file for 2018 taxes either. But then again, I've never filed, and the IRS never contacted me. But I'm a NEET/sometimes student, and my name is probably not at the top of the list. YMMV

>> No.13604130

My understanding is that they can turn around and ass fuck you anytime they want even years down the road if you haven't paid it correctly. I'm afraid of what technology is going to be able to uncover by then too. Its not the wild west anymore with the internet, and the fee + the monthly/annual interest for not paying it could leave you totally broke no matter how much you make

>> No.13604216

obviously, but crypto to crypto is a taxable event, and unless youre just buying stuff like BTC there are taxes you probably haven't paid.

Yea you are. They want you to report ALL of it, no matter how much you make. There isn't some arbitrary figure like 35k that they start coming after you.

they need to bring back that law where you can average your gains/losses over a 4 year period. They had it in the 80's and it made much more sense.

There's some fuckery around, where when you use coinbase's "tax estimate service" they assume all outgoing transactions from coinbase were "sales" to other people, meaning that sending coins to an exchange is considered a taxable event to them

for the longer holders it fucks them though, because if you move to your own private wallet off of coinbase, they consider that a sale even though you still own the coins and didn't make any money off it, but they still want their tax cut

Can someone please explain the following to me--I am retard:

I buy btc with fiat. I buy a car on craigslist with the btc. I don't have to pay capital gains now?

It can't be this simple. I feel like I'm missing something.

>> No.13606300

only if BTC gained or lost value during that time.

If it lost value, you don't owe taxes on the exchange.

If it gained in value, you owe taxes in the amount it gained from when you bought it.

>> No.13606435

what if you bought shitcoins and lost money, do you still owe somehow or are you just obligated to report losses? Can they fuck you for just not reporting losses?

>> No.13606521

Only ever bought coins locally for cash. My biggest fear is if I ever try to cash out some day they will seize fiat. Another concern is I have no fucking clue where the coins I bought came from, they could easily seize funds based on tracing those coins back to silk road or some sketchy shit.

>> No.13606625

if you bought and lost money, that's a capital gains loss. you can write off 3k in capital gains loss in your taxes every year.

If you don't report losses you get taxed more, so they don't give a fuck if you don't report your losses; more money for them.

Any profit made from certain asset classes that are not liquid is considered capital gains, i.e. income from an investment and not from work. This is taxed at lower rates than the same amount of income tax, and at different rates depending on if it's a short-term gain (realized gain w/n 1 year) or long-term gain (held asset for more than 1 year and realized gain).

In addition, if your annual earnings are low enough you do not pay any capital gains tax; I believe post-2018 TRUMP REFORM it's 15% starting at $39,000 annual.
