AICPA Seeks Clarity On Reporting Digital Assets On Form 1040

The American Institute of CPAs is suggesting a series of frequently asked questions for the Internal Revenue service to post and answer on its website regarding the new digital asset question that appears on the 2022 Form 1040.

The 2022 Form 1040 asks the following yes/no question: “At any time during 2022, did you (a) receive (as a reward, award, or payment for property or services); or (b) sell, exchange, gift, or otherwise dispose of a digitalasset (or a financial interest in a digitalasset)?”

In a February 17, 2023, letter to the agency, AICPA identified 12 questions and offered recommended responses to those questions that the IRS could include on its website to guide taxpayers on how to answer the digital asset question. Among the questions the organization is recommending the IRS answer are:

AICPA sent the letter in hopes that “IRS will consider posting these or similar FAQs on the website for this 2022 tax return filing season and that the 2023 Form 1040 instructions will be modified for next year to provide greater certainty to taxpayers and their preparers in confidently and properly complying with the question and overall requirements for digitalasset,” the letter states.

A copy of this letter can be found with all of AICPA’s tax policy and comment letters here.
