South Koreans Give Credence to Crypto Tax Law

A greater percentage of South koreans give their approval to crypto tax law era.

Following the statistics from the poll, the crypto tax law gained 53.7% support of 500 participants, with the anticipation that it kicks off by January, 2022.

Citizens within the age bracket of 20-29 constitute a  larger population in crypto trading. There is an indication of this in the survey results of Kwon Eun-hee, Korean law maker, confirming 2.35 million participants, who have dealt with the “big four” of their country-Bithumb, Upbit, Korbit and Coinone. However, there is a probability that this population will object to the idea of cryptocurrency tax law.

Further review has it that 47.8% of participants with the age bracket of 20-29 objected to this, although it gained more cheers from female participants.

Following the update by Cointelegraph, South Korean government is bent on pushing forward with the plan which is considered “inevitable” according to Hong Nam-Ki, the finance minister.

Objections are coming from South Korea cryptocurrency stakeholders. The cryptocurrency tax law implies that there will be 20% capital gains levy on transaction profits which is more than 2.5 million won, equivalent to $2,234.

Owing to the rising discord among crytocurrency industry participants on the matter, Kim Boo-Kyum, prime minister nominee pledged to give a consideration to it.

This matter has  been a subject of discourse to the country’s government, especially with the accusation of the government as taking an unfair stance.

There are lots of regulations on crypto from South Korea of which the issue of taxes on digital currency has been included as  part of the regulations. The financial reporting rules of the Financial Services Commission got adjusted in the month of March for the inclusion of cryptocurrency trades. Workers of this commission are under the mandate to make known their crypto assets.
