Virtual currencies or cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin, Ethereum and Ripple are in the news frequently these days, and for 2019 taxes the IRS is increasing efforts to catch unreported income in this developing medium of commerce and investment. Last year the IRS announced that it was sending letters to over 10,000 taxpayers with virtual currency transactions inquiring about unreported income.
