Cryptocurrency

  • What is this?
    Cryptocurrencies are digital tokens. They are a type of digital currency that allows people to make payments directly to each other through an online system. Cryptocurrencies have no legislated or intrinsic value; they are simply worth what people are willing to pay for them in the market. Examples are Bitcoin and Ethereum.
  • Who is it a good option for?
    It is good for anyone who has seen their cryptocurrency value highly appreciate and is looking to remove the asset from their estate with no capital gains tax paid on the appreciated value.
  • Financial Benefits
    A charitable income tax deduction and removal of the asset from the estate.
  • What do interested parties need to prepare for a meeting?
    A recent statement ideally showing the amount paid for this crypto (e.g. cost basis) and what it is worth today. Also, if the digital wallet is known (e.g. Gemini), that should be revealed as well.
