Latest update from robinhood “Tax Season 2019 Update”

Some very good tips for tax purpose from Robinhood app. Remember tax is due on April 15th 2019 for US resident. For Bitcoin and cryptos related transactions to fiat like USD, chances are you will get a tax summary letter of your transactions if it reach certain threshold like for coinbase and gemini $20k or so as absolute value, meaning even if you don’t profit but the amount you move in out back forth don’t matter if it add up to $20k+ you’re it, being reported to IRS or flagged. Sometime it’s not the amount of USD you transact but rather how many times you make trade transactions as well getting flagged, even you have $100 and tried to trade 20 times or more you’re it also.

Tax is not fun you get caught cheating, once caught, IRS will be after you for life, they will keep monitoring you and charge you daily for interest and penalties and garness your income, empty your bank, take your pay check directly from your employers. So maybe it’s time to totally use Bitcoin and cryptos to live?

Tax Season 2019 Update
Hi ,
With tax season just around the corner, we’re sure you’re eagerly awaiting all sorts of documentation and forms. Well, you don’t need to wait on us! You will not be receiving any tax documents for your 2018 trading activity from Robinhood.
There could be several reasons why you won’t receive a tax document this year, even though you may have had activity in your account, including:
You bought, but didn’t sell equities or options in 2018​
Proceeds from dividends didn’t exceed $10​
The value of referral stock grants you received didn’t exceed $600
For more information on taxes check out our Help Center.

All investments involve risk and the past performance of a security, or financial product does not guarantee future results or returns. Keep in mind that while diversification may help spread risk it does not assure a profit, or protect against loss, in a down market. There is always the potential of losing money when you invest in securities, or other financial products. Investors should consider their investment objectives and risks carefully before investing.
Investors should be aware that system response, execution price, speed, liquidity, market data, and account access times are affected by many factors, including market volatility, size and type of order, market conditions, system performance, and other factors.
Margin trading involves interest charges and risks, including the potential to lose more than deposited or the need to deposit additional collateral in a falling market. Before using margin, customers must determine whether this type of trading strategy is right for them given their specific investment objectives, experience, risk tolerance, and financial situation. For more information please see our Margin Disclosure Statement, Margin Agreement and FINRA Investor Information. These disclosures contain information on our lending policies, interest charges, and the risks associated with margin accounts.
Investors should consider the investment objectives and unique risk profile of Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs) carefully before investing. ETFs are subject to risks similar to those of other diversified portfolios. Leveraged and Inverse ETFs may not be suitable for all investors and may increase exposure to volatility through the use of leverage, short sales of securities, derivatives and other complex investment strategies. Although ETFs are designed to provide investment results that generally correspond to the performance of their respective underlying indices, they may not be able to exactly replicate the performance of the indices because of expenses and other factors. A prospectus contains this and other information about the ETF and should be read carefully before investing. Customers should obtain prospectuses from issuers and/or their third party agents who distribute and make prospectuses available for review. ETFs are required to distribute portfolio gains to shareholders at year end. These gains may be generated by portfolio rebalancing or the need to meet diversification requirements. ETF trading will also generate tax consequences. Additional regulatory guidance on Exchange Traded Products can be found by clicking here.
