NFT Investors Stuck in US Tax Debt Barrier as IRS Taxes NFTs
NFT has proven to be one of the hottest industries in the crypto world. This is also the reason why the IRS is preparing to tax the NFT.
NFT Investors Stuck in US Tax Debt Barrier as IRS Imposes NFT
Internal Revenue Service (IRS) officials will take action against NFT creators and investors who fail to make their tax payments, according to a report published by Bloomberg. According to data from Chainalysis, the value of the NFT market is currently around $44 million. Tax experts note that NFT sellers and buyers face millions of dollars in unpaid taxes. The IRS has confirmed that it is preparing a full set of restrictions on tax evaders.
While the impending collapse is very uncertain, this month is a great time for NFT enthusiasts to mentally prepare for tax filing season. As for what it’s worth, token taxation wasn’t mentioned, but there’s no clear explanation as to whether there are any tax obligations for NFT investors or whether they will be settled. NFT investor and founder Adam Hollander described the situation as an absolute nightmare, as he had to sift through transactions alone for several months.
Commenting on the vague tax terms surrounding the NFT, San Francisco tax attorney James Creech said:
“You cannot report a gain or loss because the IRS did not issue instructions that met your expectations.”
The IRS is preparing to tax the NFT
The IRS states that it is fully prepared to begin taxing the NFT. Jarod Koopman, acting director of cyber and forensic services at the IRS Criminal Investigation Division said:
“We will likely see a potential influx of NFT-style tax evasion or other instances of tax evasion by crypto assets in the future.”
With so much money at stake, the IRS may have no choice but to clarify the rules and simplify things when it starts cracking down on late-arrears interest.
Previously, in November 2021, South Korea was registered as a regulatory demographic leader with crypto taxation rules. South Korea, which is the first company to levy a tax on the NFT, will levy a 30% tax on crypto transactions, with the tax expected to go into effect later this year. South Korea’s financial regulator, the Financial Services Commission (FSC), has announced plans to introduce a tax system for NFTs.
