IRS Voluntary Disclosure Program or VDP for Cryptocurrency
The IRS Voluntary Disclosure Program or VDP for Cryptocurrency and Offshore Accounts and Assets
Are you searching for a proven and experienced firm who offers sound advice as well as domestic and international tax services for cryptocurrency investors? Are you concerned about undisclosed or unreported cryptocurrency or Non-Fungible Token (NFT) assets?
Fortunately there are reasonable solutions to previously unreported or unreported cryptocurrency and NFT assets. The IRS has recently released crypto-related updates to the Voluntary Disclosure Program or VDP which allows US taxpayers to disclose previously unreported information regarding offshore assets, financial accounts, and specifically cryptocurrency holdings to the IRS.
Did you know the IRS is receiving automated information and transactional reporting from cryptocurrency and NFT exchanges around the world? There are simply no more secrets from the IRS, California and other state tax agencies.
What Does a Crypto or NFT Investor Need to Know about the IRS Voluntary Disclosure Program or VDP?
The Voluntary Disclosure Program or VDP for cryptocurrency and offshore accounts and assets provides additional relief to US taxpayers who have “non-willfully” or inadvertently under-reported foreign bank or investment accounts, or gross income earned offshore from a variety of sources including:
- foreign stocks and investments
- Cryptocurrency or NFT holdings in offshore or domestic exchanges
- foreign bank or investment accounts
- bank accounts for foreign branches of US banks
- foreign hedge funds and private security funds
- foreign mutual funds
The information relating to balances or income from these sources should have been fully disclosed on FBAR or other foreign information related IRS forms, and resulting US taxes should have been paid.
The IRS is offering resident US taxpayers the opportunity to avoid paying additional penalties including the FBAR penalties, information return penalties or accuracy-related penalties. These penalties can amount to a significant additional cost, especially when taken over a period of several years. The “look-back” period for the IRS relating to these issues is 8 years.
The taxpayer will still be responsible for paying the offshore penalty provisions contained within Title 26, for all accounts and investments associated with these provisions during the years in the “covered tax return period and covered FBAR period.”
