Crypto is confusing enough. Crypto taxes take the complexity to another level, which is why expert advice is so crucial.”

— Dan Schatt

SAN MATEO, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, December 14, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — Earnity, a social crypto platform and marketplace, announced today that it is hosting a virtual expert panel on tax-loss harvesting strategies for cryptocurrency (crypto) investors. The webinar is part of Earnity’s recently announced expert speaker series. With these panels, Earnity, together with crypto industry leaders, are shedding light on the crypto market, crypto trading, crypto investing, crypto financial planning, crypto tax planning, as well as related macro economic trends and news developments impacting the crypto market and industry.

“Tax-loss harvesting is a very useful technique that crypto investors can use to offset some or all of their capital gains and possibly save a lot of taxes,” said Sharon Yip, Co-Founder and CEO of Polygon Advisory Group, and one of the speakers at Earnity’s event. “Given the bear market, we expect to see more investors deploying tax-loss harvesting this year,” she added.

“Any investor that has lost value on a crypto position has the ability to sell the investment, capture the capital loss and reinvest back into the same cryptocurrency immediately,” explains Jackson Wood, Portfolio Manager at Freedom Day Solutions, contributing writer for CoinDesk, and an expert speaker with Earnity.

“The more governments, especially in the U.S., try to tax crypto, the more crypto owners will use tax loss harvesting to compensate,” reported AccountingToday, following a recent study by the National Bureau of Economic Research that found that tax-loss harvesting becomes especially pronounced by the year-end and during market downturns. Given the bear market, many more investors may be exploring this strategy this year.

“While many investors might want to consider tax-loss harvesting, it should be made with the guidance of a financial professional you trust,” urges Ryan Firth, Founder and President of Mercer Street Personal Financial Services, an investment advisory firm based in Houston, Texas, and another speaker on Earnity’s tax-loss harvesting expert panel.

“Crypto is confusing enough. Crypto taxes take the complexity to another level, which is why expert advice is so crucial,” said Dan Schatt, CEO of Earnity. “Now more than ever, there is a need for verified, actionable, expert-led crypto education, and Earnity is collaborating with trusted, credentialed experts to allow easy access to the highest level of crypto expertise and education available,” he added.

Earnity’s “Tax-Loss Harvesting Strategies for Crypto,” webinar will take place on Monday, December 19th from 2:00-3:00 EST/11:00-12:00 PST. Registration is free.
