Dear Ethereum organizers,
As has been adequately covered in another post on this forum (see below), in the U.S. the IRS has ruled that Bitcoin is taxable as property, and so any Bitcoin based transaction is subject to capital gains tax. So this means purchases paid for in Bitcoin will need to be reported at tax time every year. Has the Ethereum organization received any advice regarding whether or how operation of Ethereum will fit in with this tax ruling when Ether is used in the operation of the the network (as opposed to being traded on exchanges, etc)?
