Coinbase宣布将部分客户信息转交美国国税局

美国最大加密货币交易所Coinbase于本周五正式向其约13000名客户发出通知,根据法律规定,他们的信息将被要求转交给美国国税局(IRS)。

美国国税局最初在2017年7月要求 Coinbase提供关于其超过50万用户的详细信息,试图获取他们的逃税证据。然而,2017年11月法院命令将这一数字减少到约14000名“大额交易”用户。但该平台现在报告人数为13000。Coinbase称他们及其客户的“局部且有重大意义的胜利”。

Coinbase本周五称,该公司将在21天内将13,000名有关客户信息进行提交,其中涉及客户的ID、姓名、出生日期、地址以及2013-2015年的历史交易记录。

Coinbase致函这些客户,表示如果有任何问题,“请及时向律师寻求法律意见”。此外,相关问题也会在网站的最新税务常见问题解答(FAQ)页面进行处理。

Coinbase和美国政府之间正在进行的法律斗争最早可以追溯到2016年11月的“John Doe传票”事件。

2月13日,个人理财服务公司Credit Karma发布的数据显示,截至目前, 7%的美国人持有加密货币,但仅有0.04%的纳税人申报相关收益。

US-based cryptocurrency exchange and wallet service Coinbase sent an official notice Friday, Feb. 23 to approximately 13,000 of its customers whose information it is legally required to turn over to the US Internal Revenue Service (IRS).

The IRS had initially asked Coinbase in July 2017 to hand over even more detailed information on every one of its then over 500,000 users in an attempt catch those cheating on their taxes. However, another court order in Nov. 2017 reduced this number to around 14,000 “high-transacting” users, which the platform now reports as 13,000, in what Coinbase calls a “partial, but still significant, victory for Coinbase and its customers.”

On Friday, Coinbase told the around 13,000 affected customers that the company would be providing their taxpayer ID, name, birth date, address, and historical transaction records from 2013-2015 to the IRS within 21 days.

Coinbase’s letter to these customers encourages them “to seek legal advice from an attorney promptly” if they have any questions. Their website also states that concerns may also be addressed on Coinbase’s Taxes FAQ.

The ongoing legal battle between Coinbase and the US government dates back to November, 2016, when the IRS filed a “John Doe summons” in the United States District Court for the Northern District of California.

On Feb. 13, personal finance service Credit Karma released data showing that only 0.04 percent of their customers had reported cryptocurrencies on their federal tax returns so far this tax season.
