Virtual currency transactions are taxable by law just like transactions in any other property. Taxpayers transacting in virtual currency may have to report those transactions on their tax returns.

All taxpayers must answer a question about virtual currency on their return.

On March 18th, the IRS issued a new alert warning all taxpayers that they must answer a section about virtual currency on their 2021 tax refund this year, even if they did not deal with any digital transactions. According to the agency, there is a question on the top of all versions of Form 1040 that asks, “At any time during 2021, did you receive, sell, exchange, or otherwise dispose of any financial interest in any virtual currency?”

“All taxpayers filing Form 1040, Form 1040-SR or Form 1040-NR must check one box answering either ‘Yes’ or ‘No’ to the virtual currency question,” the IRS explained. “The question must be answered by all taxpayers, not just taxpayers who engaged in a transaction involving virtual currency in 2021.”

UPDATE: The Markets, Treasury Yields, Ukraine & the Week Ahead

By Staff Reporters

***

***

  • Markets: US stocks rose for two straight weeks. Investors appear to be putting more emphasis on strong corporate earnings than all the uncertainty around the war in Ukraine and inflation.
  • Treasury: Yields climbed (in anticipation of higher interest rates), giving a lift to financial stocks.
  • Ukraine: Top Russian military officials signaled a change in approach to the war. They spoke about the “complete liberation” of the Donbas region in eastern Ukraine, which means Russia could potentially be pivoting from its initial goal of taking Ukraine’s biggest cities and toppling its government.
  • EARNING REPORTS THIS WEEK:
  • Monday: Earnings from Dave & Buster’s.
  • Tuesday: US consumer confidence; US Job Openings and Labor Turnover (JOLTS); earnings from Micron, Chewy, Lululemon and RH.
  • Wednesday: US ADP jobs report; US GDP for Q4 (third estimate); weekly crude oil inventories; earnings from BioNTech and Paychex.
  • Thursday: End of first quarter; US personal income and spending; US weekly jobless claims: earnings from Walgreens and Blackberry.
  • Friday: US jobs report; US ISM manufacturing.

What are OTC “PINK” Sheets?

LOW PRICED “PENNY STOCKS?

By Dr. David E. Marcinko MBA CMP®

SPONSOR: http://www.CertifiedMedicalPlanner.org

Pink sheets are an over-the-counter (OTC) market that connects broker-dealers electronically. There is no trading floor and the quotations are also all done electronically. Since there is no central trading floor or stock exchange like the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE), the pink sheet-listed companies do not have the same criteria to fulfill as the companies listed on national stock exchanges. Many stocks listed on the pink sheets are low-priced penny stocks that trade for under $5 a share.

CITE: https://www.r2library.com/Resource/Title/0826102549

Pink sheets got their name because the original pink sheets listing the stocks were actually printed and distributed on pink pieces of paper. Trading over-the-counter (OTC) refers to the process of how securities listed on the pink sheets are traded through a broker-dealer network.

DOJ Recoveries for False Claims Act Cases Doubled in 2021

BY HEALTH CAPITAL CONSULTANTS, LLC.

DEFINITION: The False Claims Act, also called the “Lincoln Law”, is an American federal law that imposes liability on persons and companies who defraud governmental programs. It is the federal Government’s primary litigation tool in combating fraud against the Government. The law includes a provision that allows people who are not affiliated with the government, called “relators” under the law, to file actions on behalf of the government. Persons filing under the Act stand to receive a portion of any recovered damages.

DOJ Recoveries for False Claims Act Cases Doubled in 2021

On February 1, 2022, the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) announced their recovery of $5.6 billion in settlements and judgments from civil cases involving fraud and false claims for fiscal year (FY) 2021. Over $5 billion was recouped from the healthcare industry for federal losses alone, and included recoveries from drug and medical device manufacturers, managed care providers, hospitals, pharmacies, hospice organizations, laboratories, and physicians.

This figure is more than double the amount of healthcare-related recoveries secured in FY 2020, which totaled $1.8 billion. (Read more…)
