Talk:Tax compliance

It would be really nice if someone could research historical presidents as to whether bitcoins should be classified as non-functional currency (like foreign currency) or stored value like gold or silver, or possibly something else entirely like a poker chip. So far I think most of the text assumes bitcoins should be treated as stored value for tax purposes.

  • The US government, at least, has already declared Bitcoins to be stored value. --Luke-jr 21:47, 15 June 2011 (GMT)
