Important guide on crypt taxation provided by David Kemmerer - CEO of CryptoTrader.tax. Millions of cryptocurrency users face a challenging problem when it comes to staying compliant with tax laws. Due to the way the digital asset is treated by governments around the world, it is most often subject to capital gains and losses rules similar to stocks, bonds, and other forms of property. This sparks a wide variety of problems for consumers, cryptocurrency exchanges, tax professionals, and other platforms that need to provide both cost basis data and fair market value data to properly report the asset for tax purposes. CryptoTrader.Tax is a platform built to solve this challenge, and with its 2018 partnership with tax giant TurboTax, it is now bringing cryptocurrency tax services to the mainstream.  📍Learn More at:  https://bit.ly/3nXKAfb ⚠️IRS Guidelines  https://www.irs.gov/individuals/international-taxpayers/frequently-asked-questions-on-virtual-currency-transactions    📚Shoe Dog: A Memoir by the Creator of Nike by Phil Knight  https://amzn.to/3ftHMTO 📚Zero to One: Notes on Startups, or How to Build the Future by Peter Thiel  https://amzn.to/2KCTGQ5 📚Traction by Gabriel Weinberg and Justin Mares https://amzn.to/33gGSFr  👉Reputable Mentions https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mark_Manson https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ryan_Holiday  https://jamesclear.com/  🔗Connect with me Online🔗 Telegram: https://t.me/constantinkogan  Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/constantinkogan Twitter: https://twitter.com/constkogan Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/constkogan  LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/constantin-kogan  Medium: https://medium.com/@constkogan  Website: https://ckogan.com Podcast: https://anchor.fm/constantinkogan  YouTube: https://youtu.be/09ArgczZN7Y 🙏Thank you for listening to this interview! 🙏 👍🏼Subscribe, Like, Share, Comment!✍🏻
