A bill that would exclude Americans from reporting any transactions up to $50 or any deal in which they gain less than $50 has been proposed by prominent U.S. senators in an effort to liberate Americans from monitoring taxes every time a cryptocurrency transaction takes place.

With Kyrsten Sinema (Democrat), Senator Patrick Toomey (Republican) has pushed for the exemption from tax obligations for cryptocurrency users making smaller investments or purchases. Their Virtual Currency Tax Fairness Act is a continuation of an initiative that was previously put out in the House of Representatives.

Although digital currencies have the potential to become a regular aspect of American daily life, our current tax law prevents this from happening, according to Toomey. Before retiring from the Senate at the end of this session, he made an effort to support the crypto sector in a number of ways.

The newest bill will make it simpler for people to adopt cryptocurrency as a regular form of payment by exempting minor personal transactions like buying a cup of coffee from taxes.

But as per Internal Revenue Service’s (IRS) website— “When you sell virtual currency, you must recognize any capital gain or loss on the sale.”

The new proposal, nevertheless, faces a difficult road ahead in a Congress that is about to begin a lengthy August break before the midterm elections. Despite modest progress in the campaign to regulate stablecoins, most congressional experts believe that meaningful legislative change for the cryptocurrency industry won’t happen until 2023.
