Bitcoin and taxes seems no match as it is said that taxes are not applied on bitcoin, but still in some scenarios it does and this whole thing of yes and no causes bitcoin tax issues/questions in everyone’s mind. If taxes are applied on bitcoins then in which scenarios and what would be the bitcoin tax rate ?
I guess 2018 will be the year when tax offices of the countries where there are the biggest crypto communities will raise their heads to get their piece of the pie. Like in the US the IRS monitors taxes from Bitcoin transactions as Bitcoin is considered as a property and is taxed accordingly.

It was also in the recent news that Australian tax officials will start "pursuing bitcoin investors for their tax liabilities" https://www.businessinsider.com.au/aust ... ncy-2018-2
