CPA.com Practice Area Resources
As our world evolves due to the rapid pace of technological advancements, tax professionals are not immune, and must consider how this effects both their current and future work, as well as their clients’ businesses. Technology, (such as crypto assets), has impacted the overall business economy and therefore, influenced numerous legislative changes, effectively transforming the landscape of both direct, and indirect tax. The profession is recognizing this shift as many firms report new client demand in the area of tax and are working to evolve their services to meet this need.
Clients are facing complex tax compliance guidelines and are challenged to stay up to date with changing guidance, rates and rules. Ironically, the cause of the complexity is also the solution: technology. By leveraging technology, firms can more effectively keep up with the changing tax landscape, then take advantage of the opportunity to provide high-quality, profitable, tax compliance services to clients.

Many businesses are facing significant challenges managing their sales and use tax (SUT) compliance.

The crypto asset ecosystem has surged into a $200 billion industry, sparking a wave of global disruption. Today, an estimated 8-14% of the US population owns crypto assets. The rising popularity of crypto has led to new IRS guidelines and enforcement efforts on the reporting and compliance of crypto transactions. Many crypto holders are unaware of their responsibilities for reporting and paying taxes on crypto income, and even among those who are aware, there is often considerable confusion regarding how to do so accurately.
Now is the opportune time for CPAs to build their crypto asset capabilities and become well-versed with the reporting requirements for crypto assets in order to meet growing client needs. While crypto assets introduce a number of challenges inherent to the unique, decentralized ecosystem in which they operate, crypto-focused technologies can aid in automating, calculating and reporting crypto transactions.
