Crypto payroll provider Bitwage and software developer Consultabit have added a new tax tool to their bitcoin investment calculator.

  • Announced Wednesday, the new tax add-on will help crypto investors stay on top of their reporting obligations by providing an estimate of federal taxes due on their bitcoin gains.

  • The calculator presents a total owed to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) based on amounts invested, annual income and marital status.

  • Additionally, Bitwage and Consultabit have added a button allowing investors to view their gains and taxes on one-time purchases.

  • The tax calculator feature comes at a time when the Internal Revenue Service – the U.S. tax agency – is ramping up efforts to stop suspected avoidance on crypto investment tax, even against the advice of its own watchdog.

  • Bitwage and Consultabit launched the bitcoin dollar cost average calculator in January.

  • The payroll provider enables employers to pay their workers in bitcoin and several other cryptocurrencies as a way to quickly move money across borders.

  • It recently added payments in the USD coin (USDC) stablecoin, linked to the price of the U.S. dollar, allowing users to avoid the volatility associated with other supported cryptocurrencies.
