Why Choose Us?

Tax attorneys and CPAs are a dime a dozen, but how many of them are experienced with bitcoin related issues? Not many. Tyson is recognized as a leading authority on the taxation of bitcoin and is one the first people that trusted news sites like, Business Insider, and Bloomberg BNA turn to when preparing a bitcoin related article for publication.

In the course of representing clients, Tyson has dealt with nearly every issue related to bitcoin taxation, including:

  • Whether bitcoins are a capital asset, foreign currency, or neither (and how to apply the proper rules of each)
  • How to determine basis when bitcoins have been mixed in a common wallet or account
  • How to properly calculate amount realized when bitcoins are used to purchase goods and services
  • How to identify the acquisition date for bitcoins that were not purchased on a major bitcoin exchange
  • How to characterize bitcoin gains or losses (as either capital or ordinary)
  • Whether bitcoin mining is a business, activity for the production of income, or neither
  • Whether mined bitcoins should be realized as income when they are awarded or subsequently sold
  • How to determine basis in bitcoins that were mined instead of purchased
  • How to deduct bitcoin mining expenses
  • Also, all discussions are protected by the Attorney-Client privilege. This means that Tyson can evaluate your situation in complete confidentiality. CPAs and other tax preparers do not have this privilege, so anything you tell them can be used against you in a later criminal proceeding. Given the uncertainty regarding bitcoin taxation, particularly whether bitcoins are subject the reporting requirements for foreign financial accounts, it’s worthwhile to make sure you can openly discuss your bitcoin activities and evaluate your reporting obligations.

    As one of the few tax attorneys with significant bitcoin related experience, Tyson is better equipped to resolve your issues than almost anyone in the country.
