U.S. President Joe Biden’s 2022 budget includes crypto money regulations that have been on the agenda for a long time.
According to the document published on the subject, Biden’s budget proposal includes regulations on cryptocurrencies.
The budget was released today by the Biden administration. There are also two separate proposals in the budget that include additional requirements for what type of information should be reported to the Department of the Treasury, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), or other Treasury sub-departments.
The first proposal in the White House budget is the expansion of broker disclosure to crypto assets. The Ministry of the Treasury stated that the scope of the information to be provided by the brokers will be expanded.
The document includes the following statements:
“The proposal will require brokers, including entities such as US cryptocurrency exchanges and wallet providers, to report information on certain passive assets and significant foreign holders when reporting on crypto assets held in an account by these entities.”
Gross revenues, sales and significant foreign owners in passive entities will be included in this report.
According to the document, this offer will enter into force for returns made after 31 December 2022.
“Tax evasion using crypto assets is still a growing problem. As the Department of the Treasury document explains the proposal, overseas crypto exchanges and wallet providers can transact business without taxpayers leaving the United States, as the industry is fully digital.”
The second proposal to introduce a “comprehensive financial account reporting” structure on tax compliance will require financial institutions to report data on user accounts with a breakdown of different types of transfers above a minimum threshold of $600. This will include custody services and cryptocurrency exchanges.
In addition, reporting requirements will also apply if businesses that receive crypto assets in transactions where taxpayers purchase crypto assets from one broker and then transfer their crypto assets to another broker with a fair market value of more than $10,000 report it.
