2024 Cryptocurrency Tax Changes

The IRS also issued guidance on the taxation of cryptocurrency for 2024. Under the new rules, cryptocurrency will be treated as property for tax purposes. This means that gains or losses from the sale or exchange of cryptocurrency will be taxed at the same rates as gains or losses from the sale or exchange of other types of property.

The IRS also clarified that cryptocurrency airdrops and forks will be treated as taxable income. Airdrops are free distributions of cryptocurrency, while forks are the creation of a new cryptocurrency from an existing blockchain.


The IRS's 2024 tax reminders and cryptocurrency guidance provide taxpayers with important information they need to file their 2023 tax returns. Taxpayers should consult with a tax professional or refer to the IRS's website if they have any questions about their tax obligations.
