Why Your Crypto May Be Audited and How To Respond

Guest: Alex Kugelman, Tax Controversy Lawyer

by BitcoinTaxes | Taxes on Crypto Series

Welcome to the third episode of our multi-part series on crypto taxation.
If you missed, or haven’t yet listened to our first two episodes, we covered the basics of crypto taxation, what is, and what isn’t taxable. Then, we explored like-kind, 1099s, and how to handle margin trading, staking, loans, and NFTs on your taxes.
Today’s episode covers all things cryptocurrency audit. Alex Kugelman, a cryptocurrency tax controversy lawyer, joins us to discuss the ins and outs of cryptocurrency audits, how to avoid them, and how to successfully navigate a crypto audit if you do find yourself as a target of the IRS.
