Inside This Issue


Treasury and IRS announce that businesses do not have to report certain transactions involving digital assets until regulations are issued

WASHINGTON — The Treasury Department and Internal Revenue Service today issued an announcement informing businesses that they do not have to report the receipt of digital assets the same way as they must report the receipt of cash until Treasury and IRS issue regulations.

The Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act revised the rules that require taxpayers that are engaged in a trade or business to report receiving cash of more than $10,000 by considering digital assets to be cash. Announcement 2024-4 provides transitional guidance as Treasury and the IRS implement the new provisions. This particular provision requires the Treasury Department to issue regulations before it goes into effect.

The announcement does not affect the rules in effect before the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act for cash received in the course of a trade or business, which must be reported on Form 8300, Report of Cash Payments over $10,000 Received in a Trade or Business, within 15 days of receiving the cash.

Treasury and the IRS intend to issue proposed regulations to provide additional information and procedures for reporting the receipt of digital assets, giving the public an opportunity to comment both in writing and, if requested, at a public hearing.
