Sharon L. McCarthy will participate in the panel titled "Crypto Currency: What Every Practitioner Needs To Know" at the 2018 New England IRS Representation Conference

The presentation will provide tax professionals with a critical first look at new IRS initiatives on taxpayer compliance and reporting obligations for cryptocurrency transactions.

The panelists will discuss the IRS position on cryptocurrency as property rather than cash, analyze IRS monitoring to increase compliance, consider criminal investigations and prosecutions for failing to properly report cryptocurrency transactions and define proper reporting and tax treatment for “mining” and exchanging crypto currency.
