US legislators plan to raise $28 billion in tax money from crypto transactions according to the summary of the bipartisan infrastructure deal.
The scheme aims to introduce more stringent regulations on crypto exchanges, compelling them to document digital assets transactions and report crypto dealings exceeding $10,000 to the Internal Revenue Service.
Lawmakers made swift changes to the US bipartisan infrastructure deal to include crypto taxes on July 28.
The projected tax that will be generated from cryptocurrency taxation will make up 5.6% of the proposed $500 billion investment into the transportation and power sectors.
Cointelegraph, citing a quote from Blockchain Association executive director, Kristin Smith reports that the digital asset industry is unhappy with the development and will do everything possible to “change it”.
