Did you know that selling crypto, converting crypto to USD or even another cryptocurrency, and/or using crypto to buy goods and services can all potentially trigger a taxable-event?

The IRS classifies cryptocurrencies as property, so cryptocurrency donations to Great River Children’s Museum, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, receives the same tax treatment as a stock donation. Donating cryptocurrency is a non-taxable event, meaning you do not owe capital gains tax on the appreciated amount and can deduct it on your taxes. This makes Bitcoin and other cryptocurrency donations one of the most tax-efficient ways to support your favorite cause. Please contact your tax professional or financial advisor for guidance and more information.
