Tax Iran agency wants to legalize electronic transactions on the exchange


Iran's National Tax Administration (INTA) is pushing for the establishment of a legal framework to impose taxes on cryptocurrency trading platforms in the country.

Two months after Iranian President Hassan Rouhani's call for a regulatory framework for cryptocurrency trading, INTA has released a new proposal that points to the need for legalization of asset exchanges. digital, local newspaper Eghtesad Online reported on August 12.

Proposing the Iranian regulator should have a legal framework for taxing cryptocurrencies, INTA said the government should only allow authorized exchanges to convert currencies while keeping track of transactions.

The tax authority called for a broader regulatory framework to avoid harsh conditions for cryptocurrency exchanges that could help black markets thrive.

Capital gains tax, fixed base tax, and occupation tax are the three tax regimes for crypto trading platforms proposed by INTA, although the proposal does not specify the mechanism for taxing crypto businesses. 

Decentralized finance is also included in the proposal, according to the sources. To comply with Anti-Money Laundering regulations, the proposal wants to establish an upper limit on transactions that occur on decentralized exchanges.

Cryptocurrency mining remains legal for licensed miners operating in Iran, although it is temporarily banned until September due to concerns about energy shortages during the hot summer months. Miners are recognized as owners of the digital assets they mine.
