Most countries don't really have tax regulations for Bitcoin. You can read more about UK's stance here:

If Bitcoin gets classified as a digital currency maybe there will be a minimal taxable threshold of annual profit in Bitcoins which you will need to declare.

In my country there is no any tax on holding bitcoin, as currently there is no any management by the government or any other financial body for bitcoin, and if the systems for it were organized then it will have the same taxes as other currency as it is also a form of currency, Virtual Currency.

Most countries don't tax bitcoins because its like money, and fiat money isn't taxed. What is taxed is the things that you can buy with fiat money or with bitcoins. If you bought anything, what you are buying is taxed equal if payed with bitcoins or payed with bitcoins. Few countries tax them as inversion, you will need to pay a tax for your profits when you trade it.

I would say for america if you were to treat it as an investment and pay the capital gains on it you should be okay (I suppose, this is not actual financial advice ha)   Cool

There is no tax imposed on bitcoin. Some countries have strict regulations which are just to reduce the use of bitcoin. Tax issues has not arise yet just because bitcoin is decentralized.

I think their are some country who have started taxation on bitcoin as they have accepted the bitcoin. but their are some country who are still in confusion in bitcoin technology and not given any detail on bitcoin. even bitcoin being decentralized if you want you can show the taxation as live trading in Shares and calculating the profit and submitting the tax. But be carefull as some country have declared bitcoin as illegal in that country you should not show anything about bitcoin in your accounting if not you will be in problem.

so each and every country have their own rules on bitcoin.

It will differ from country to country, but in most countries you only start paying taxes once you received some kind of profit from it. Also called Capital Gains. If I bought $1000 worth of Bitcoin and it sits there and I do not use it, no tax can be taken from it. The moment when I sell it for $2000, I have to declare that profit <$1000> as Capital Gain.

In many countries people spend the bitcoins at merchants who accepts Bitcoin as payment and then they pay VAT on those goods or service or items.

The government gets it's share no matter what you do with your bitcoins.  Roll Eyes

if you are running a business like selling stuff online and receiving money in form of bitcoin, (depending on your country) you must pay taxes for your business.

you can search about problems that some users had with law enforcement because of not paying taxes and they were finned.

In europe there is no tax for the bitcoins at all what is pretty sweet.
Altough in america its more difficult to gain bitcoins with higher amounts.
Yes there is. In Norway there is. And Norway is a part of Europe. We have taxes for what you earn trading (you will also get tax deduction if you loose). And you will have to pay tax for the amount you have in the end of the year. The problem is that they depend on honest souls to report their earnings to the state.

There is no tax imposed on bitcoin. Some countries have strict regulations which are just to reduce the use of bitcoin. Tax issues has not arise yet just because bitcoin is decentralized.
Some countries has tax on bitcoins.  As I explained above.

In my country, government & national bank don't care about bitcoin, they don't approve bitcoin as currency, but they let any bitcoin service & company run(for now).
So, there's no tax for bitcoin in my country, but of course those bitcoin service & company must pay tax to government.

I am glad to live in a country where I can sell the BTC via Western Union, Moneygram, and every e-payment processor, and get the money without anyone asking me where did this money come from.
Maximum per year money that you are not taxed is 20.000 USD via Western Union, or at least used to be, don't know for real now , all I know I am safe in this tax thing.

There is not tax up here in Canada. I vaguely remember however there being taxes currency in Brazil. I  agree that Bitcoin is money and should not be taxed. I do think however governments should leave the currency alone. The fed is stealing a  lot of money from the working class.

Seriously?

How do they tax it in Brazil? Everytime you buy it? You spend it?
How can you make this work? :p

Bitcoins aren't recognized by the Government and there are no taxes involved hence. We only need to pay a fee for our transactions to get confirmed and if we use wallets like xapo/coinbase, we don't need to pay the fee as well. However, it's not possible for us to keep holding bitcoins forever in our wallet and whenever we convert it into fiat, we need to pay taxes applied by the bank.

Bitcoins can't be taxed. The fiat that you get when trading bitcoins, either buying or selling, that one can be taxed.

Governments only tax fiat money.

Now, if you run an illegal website or something, they will just seize your bitcoins when they raid and confiscate your server.

In my country, there ain't any taxes and everybody here is warned not to trade Bitcoins as it is the most volatile currency and our Reserve Bank says that "we should not invest what we cannot afford to lose"... Wink
No taxes at all That's a great thing as in my country we have to pay too many taxes. Whether it's on our medical bills, restaurant bills, shopping bills and almost each and every thing has a 12.5% tax plus our normal taxes. For me, bitcoins are the best as I save my money in bitcoins and don't need to pay taxes on it but for spending them, I need to pay those taxes. I can only save Income Tax.
