The New Crypto Income Tax Rule To Wait Until January 2022

According to a recent media report, the South Korean congress plans to put off the recently considered cryptocurrency income tax rule. A planning and finance committee of the National Assembly has issued a report, which proposes the necessity of implementing the crypto income tax rule from at least 2022.

A few months ago, in July, a report stated that South Korea’s Minister of Finance and Economy believes that the country should come up with a tax on cryptocurrency trading and investing. Back then, he added that South Korea has been in discussion with other countries about introducing a new digital law.

In July 2020, the country’s Ministry of Economy and Finance amended its tax code, where it included the plan for charging residents a 20% tax on gains from cryptocurrency trading, which are worth more than 2.5 million Korean won (about $2,000).

Lawmakers in the National Assembly are to approve the Government’s plan, which was to carry into effect the cryptocurrency income tax rule from October 2021.

Reason For The Delay – Time Is Tight

As per the media report, the reason for the postponement of the crypto tax law is based on some concerns, raised by local crypto exchanges. They have claimed the lack of time to build their proper tax reporting system and infrastructure, needful for the process to begin.

The so-called “Specific Financial Information Act” would be enforced from March next year, so crypto exchanges have to complete the necessary reporting system by September 2021 for verifying their real names of deposit withdrawal accounts.

As CryptoPotato reported, South Korea announced the planning of the crypto income tax in June this year. The Asian country went through some different views on how and whether it should tax profits from cryptocurrency. Firstly, at the beginning of 2020, the Ministry of Economy and Finance did not consider that digital asset trading gains as taxable income. A month later, another local report said the Ministry believes that the nation could start label cryptocurrency trading profits as “other income.”
