The taxation of digital assets is a fast-paced and quickly changing environment. We’ll review what’s new in the DA world and the tax implications that go along with it. While the IRS has issued little substantial authority in this area, there have been a number of developments in informal IRS guidance.We'll review the guidance to date and apply to real world client scenarios.

We'll cover:
