My crypto was stolen or hacked? What does it mean Tax wise?

Hey Saim, I know about crypto taxation but my case is a little different. Somebody hacked my account and I lost a major part of my earnings. How should report this into my taxes?

You can claim such losses under personal casualty and theft. This deduction is not a dollar for dollar and certain thresholds need to be met.

Best to speak with a cryptocurrency accountant about your specific case and how to deduct crypto stolen on your Tax return.
