𝐕𝐈𝐑𝐓𝐔𝐀𝐋 𝐂𝐔𝐑𝐑𝐄𝐍𝐂𝐘 𝐓𝐑𝐀𝐍𝐒𝐀𝐂𝐓𝐈𝐎𝐍 𝐐𝐔𝐄𝐒𝐓𝐈𝐎𝐍 𝐨𝐧 𝐅𝐎𝐑𝐌 𝟏𝟎𝟒𝟎 (𝟒/𝟓/𝟐𝟎𝟐𝟐)

There is a virtual currency question at the top of Form 1040, Form 1040-SR and Form 1040-NR. It asks: “At any time during 2021, did you receive, sell, exchange, or otherwise dispose of any financial interest in any virtual currency?”

All taxpayers filing Form 1040, Form 1040-SR or Form 1040-NR must check one box answering either “Yes” or “No” to the virtual currency question. The question must be answered by all taxpayers, not just taxpayers who engaged in a transaction involving virtual currency in 2021.

For specific examples of Yes and No responses, see https://www.irs.gov/newsroom/irs-reminds-taxpayers-they-must-check-a-box-on-form-1040-1040-sr-or-1040-nr-on-virtual-currency-transactions-for-2021
