El Servicio de Impuestos Internos de EE. UU. Utiliza inteligencia artificial para rastrear transacciones
The IRS intends to use artificial intelligence to monitor compliance with digital currency tax rules.
The notice, published today by the U.S. agency, refers to the use of artificial intelligence and machine learning in information about cryptocurrencies, which are in the public domain.
The main goal of the organisation is to automate the compliance processes. The use of an innovative approach with the use of IRS AI has spurred an increasing number of fraud cases and citizens' interest in a new asset class, increasing in proportion to the capitalisation of the crypto market. In addition, the agency itself noted the need to keep up with the times to digitalisation, getting rid of "paper processes."
As tools, the IRS intends to use chatbots to track cryptocurrency transactions. Using publicly available data.
It is worth recalling the organisation's recent request for a "John Doe subpoena" about users of the Poloniex crypto exchange. At the time, the IRS required data on anyone who made transactions worth more than $20,000 between 2016 and 2020.
In addition to problems with tax transparency, the IRS may also face the problem of stock tokens, which do not allow to accurately estimate the income of citizens received after their exchange for other cryptocurrencies, or cash. In addition, there are tokens like Monero, which become a narrow neck for agencies because of anonymity.
But in the case of them, the IRS has a great example of behavior - South Korea, which became one of the first countries to impose a total ban on confidential coins.
