This two-part webinar will teach you what blockchain is, and what you can do with it, as well as the taxation of the most popular use cases of cryptocurrency (i.e., how to treat the tax returns of your clients who are active in the cryptocurrency market). You will learn what the blockchain is, how it works, why it matters and what can and will be done with the technology.

On the tax side, you will learn what “cryptocurrency” (i.e., Bitcoin) is and what the most popular use cases for cryptocurrency are. From there you will learn how the U.S. federal tax system treats common property dispositions and how those rules relate to analogs in cryptocurrency.

This webinar should prepare you to take on clients in blockchain businesses as well as ensure that you understand the full compliance measures to give tax advice and complete tax returns for any cryptocurrency use situation by your clients.
