De Grandpré Chait navigates crypto tax challenges for clients

Another thing that Chainalysis helped us a lot with is to make our clients understand the importance of doing a voluntary disclosure. Knowing that the tax authorities started sending John Doe summonses to these exchanges, and the equivalent here in Canada, it’s clear that at one point it will be audited, and the consequences will be far greater than if they had done a voluntary disclosure at first.”
