Anyone know if LIFO is okay for Bitcoin Trading taxes for 2018?

I want to announce my massive 2018 crypto losses for taxes but the online program I am using (cointracking.info) says about 5x the losses if I choose FIFO than approximately the real losses when I choose LIFO.
I understand FIFO is preferred by the IRS but because of how badly margin trading on Poloniex in 2017 screws up my cost basis calculations for everything, it seems like LIFO is the only way to do this right now without reporting a completely irrational loss on my taxes. Is LIFO accepted by the IRS, anyone else had experience like this? Thanks!

Bitcoin Trading Taxes

I am starting a week long sprint to do a NodeJS module. Your post sounds like someone I could team with, so hit me up if you are interested.
The project consists of generating bitcoin trading tax reports based on user API keys. Expressed in MVC terms, the model is the user history (API fetch), the controller is the JavaScript i am getting ready to code, and the view(s) are what we make of it, with the bare min consisting of txt file for tax submission, and the first eye candy that pops to mind is a chart of the portfolio value over time. Other nice things would be a JSON dump and a spreadsheet export.
An example can be found at https://bitcoin.tax/
These guys are pretty CYA. I would like to do something that allows the user more options, specifically FIFO vs. LIFO, like-kind accounting, exposing the root cost basis as a variable. My plan is to limit the scope by completely forgoing gifts, purchases, etc... for now and focus just on the data that is available via API keys.

Bitcoin trading taxes in the UK

Ive been trading (quite heavily on poloniex) for the last 6 months and I need to do my tax returns for 2016/2017.
Im aware that you are classed as a "trader" if you make regular trades (which is subject to higher tax rates)
However Im not sure if I would be classed as a trader since crypto trading isnt exactly a regulated and may not be classed as such
Any of you UK people have filed HMRC returns and dealt with this?
Thanks!

I need your help funding legal costs in a case at the EU Court of Justice related to Bitcoin and VAT exemption!

As some of you may already know there is an ongoing case regarding Bitcoin and VAT exemption in Sweden and the EU. The Supreme Administrative Court (“Högsta förvaltningsdomstolen”) has now requested a preliminary ruling from the EU Court of Justice. The case, C-264/14, can be found here and has been covered quite a lot in media (Bloomberg, Law360, CoinDesk).
I got involved in this simply by asking for an advance ruling in Sweden because I wanted to start selling bitcoin on my site bitcoin.se. It has now escalated and I find myself in a situation where my case will likely decide if and how VAT should be applied to Bitcoin throughout the EU.
It took me a while to realize the significance of this case and I have to appoint a top law firm team here in Sweden that can prepare a written submission (and we’re short on time here - this has to be done in 3 weeks) as well as a potential oral hearing later on. The Swedish counsel will also cooperate with interested parties throughout Europe to get input and support from other European countries if deemed necessary. I am currently discussing with teams at three of Swedens top firms in VAT and EU-law. After asking about the costs I have received fee estimates that range from 22 000 to 38 000 EUR (approximately 56 to 96 bitcoin at the time of writing).
So here is my problem. There is no way that I can finance this personally. I don’t have enough commercial interest in the case to throw all of my savings on it, the business that we wanted to start on bitcoin.se has not been launched so there is no money there. This is why I am now reaching out to the Bitcoin community.
Disclaimer: Donating is in no way a guarantee that we will win the case but if I can’t raise the money the risks are dramatically increased that I will lose since I will have to deal with the court proceedings on my own (which one of the parties I have discussed the case with has described as “catastrophical” for Bitcoin in Europe).
If the donated money is in excess of the costs I will donate the excess funds to Bitcoin organizations in Europe. If, for some reason, none of the funds raised are used I will return all bitcoins to the sender address (so make sure that you donate from an address that you control!)
Please send your donations to this Bitcoin address 1EyosiaYh9gVEP7VKPTyrFGSSoS8QDSsbb
About me My name is David Hedqvist and have been running bitcoin.se since early 2012. I am a moderator of the Scandinavian forum section at bitcointalk.org and I have also been a moderator at bitcoin.stackexchange.com since its launch.
I will post this message on bitcoin.se, on bitcointalk.org where my name is D.H. and on Reddit where my name is D_ H_. If you read about the case on curia.europa.eu or in media you can confirm that the case is about David Hedqvist and bitcoin.se.

Nickel and dime bitcoin trading for last 6 years...report on taxes?

I recently got a notice from the IRS asking me to consider filing amended returns due to involvement in cryptocurrency.
From 2103-2018 I traded a bit of bitcoin off and on, and also played a little bitcoin poker. Total poker profits were about $500, and overall from trading bitcoin and ripple I ended up with maybe $1500 in profit, spread out over the years. Is it worth it to go back and amend and file all those returns? Will they come after me if I don't?

Fairly new to Bitcoin trading, how are taxes involved in this? Does this count as under the table income?

Edit: If possible, could you provide a source that can help me further understand the process? Thanks 😊

Bitcoin.Tax Unmatched Trades

So just a quick question. What is the downside of amending past tax returns with "unmatched" trades?
Basically I'm trying to do the right thing and amend a few past tax returns with all the stupid trading I did early on. I imported all Binance/Bittrex/SDEX trades and I have a bunch of unmatched stuff, but overall I'd owe about $200 in taxes.
Can I just amend, attach the report from bitcoin.tax, and pay the calculated tax? Am I assuming worst case scenario and paying a higher tax or would I get in trouble somehow?

I already filed taxes but forgot I traded bitcoin. What will happen?

I filed taxes and under the option where it asks if I traded any cryptocurrency I put no but I just remembered that I did. I was fooling around with it and only made $0.02 off of it.

Bitcoin TAX Myths! How to Avoid the Headache with Cointracking Bitcoin Trading and Taxes - Set 40% aside and don't be stupid How Can I Avoid Paying Taxes On Bitcoin And Crypto [100% Legal] How To Do Taxes For Bitcoin: Cryptocurrency CRYPTO TAXES 2020 - Cryptocurrency Taxes for Bitcoin and Altcoins

While the IRS released its first set of guidelines and rules in 2014, fewer than 900 individuals reported capital gains or losses related to Bitcoin trading between 2013 and 2015. Bitcoin taxes can be a bummer, but at least you can deduct capital losses on bitcoin, just as you would for losses on stocks or bonds. These losses can offset other capital gains on sales. Wallet providers have implemented risk mitigation tools to make buying, trading, and selling bitcoin more secure and user-friendly. Apart from tax considerations, investors should take a look at wallet providers or registered investment vehicles with the kind of security features that one might expect from a banking institution. The reason that buying and selling crypto is taxable is because the IRS identifies crypto as property, not currency. As a result, tax rules that apply to property (but not real estate tax rules) transactions, like selling collectible coins or vintage cars that can appreciate in value, also apply to bitcoin, ethereum, and other cryptocurrencies.. To no one’s surprise, the IRS isn’t kidding For federal taxes, that means you pay a 15% tax on any gains, unless you make a lot of money (more than $479,000 (for married couples) or $425,800 (for individuals)), in which case you pay 20%.
