Navigating Uncharted Waters: The Power Of Opinion Letters In Crypto Taxes

First time guest Ephraim Olson, a US tax lawyer who specializes in crypto tax law, joins the show to discuss opinion letters. The lack of guidance in the crypto tax space often puts taxpayers in a difficult position. Without official guidance from the IRS, there are a range of crypto activities that would benefit from further clarity. Opinion letters are written by lawyers to take a specific position on crypto tax activity – Ephraim explains how these letters can benefit taxpayers and why more people should be educated about these letters as a potential option to utilize.
