After taking our Basics or Basics+Intro course, you'll know more about crypto taxation than 99% of tax pros. 

With all the enthusiasm and possibilities surrounding cryptocurrency, crypto taxation is not discussed enough—and we're aiming to open a dialogue. Since 2018 is expected to be a landmark year for IRS enforcement of cryptocurrency gains, many tax pros will see a major uptick in crypto tax prep inquiries. In order to steer clear of potential criminal penalties, you’ll need to be prepared to keep correct records of crypto transactions, understand their tax implications, and accurately report the spending, selling, and/or exchanging of crypto for other tokens. Perhaps most importantly, you’ll need to know how to appropriately price a return of this magnitude.

In our introductory courses, you will:

  • Understand the basics of crypto taxation and accounting in order to accurately generate short- and long-term capital gains.
  • Acquaint yourself with the US’s progressive tax system involving cryptocurrencies.
  • Learn how you can help crypto traders create a game plan for their crypto accounting and tax preparation.
  • Become versed with the common terminology and key jargon regarding crypto taxation.
  • Understand how to plan the best course of action for clients who hold cryptocurrency as an investment.

Start your journey toward gaining knowledge and increasing your income with our introductory course.
