Cryptocurrency Tax Audits: IRS Letter 6173, IRS Letter 6174, & IRS Letter 6174-A
The IRS recently sent notices to coinbase members and other individuals holding virtual investments. The letters sent by the IRS included:
- IRS Letter 6173: Notice that requests a response from the taxpayer about alleged noncompliance.
- IRS Letter 6174: Notice that requests taxpayer review their return and, if necessary, file an amended return
- IRS Letter 6174-A: Notice that there is a potential misreporting of virtual currency transactions and IRS may follow-up with enforcement actions
These cryptocurrency audits are targeted at individuals who have owned bitcoin (BTC), ethereum (ETH), litecoin (LTC), ripple (XRP), Zcash (ZEC), darkcoin/dash (Dash), and more.
If you believe you’re a target of a cryptocurrency tax investigation from the IRS, then you should immediately contact a tax attorney before disclosing anything to the government.
Cryptocurrency compliance investigations may also turn into larger, criminal tax investigations. These situations can be a massive intrusion into your personal and professional life and your accountant could be compelled to tell the IRS everything you’ve told him or her because the “accountant-client privilege” does not extend to criminal investigations or state tax proceedings.
However, the “attorney-client privilege” can help shield you while preparing your defense. The government cannot compel the testimony of confidential communications between you and your tax attorney so long as the attorney was not involved in the matters leading up to the government’s criminal tax investigation.
