Out front on bitcoins

As the national taxpayer advocate, who speaks at UF Law this month, urges the IRS to guide taxpayers on transactions with the new digital currency bitcoin, UF Law Professor Omri Marian stands at the forefront of analyzing the future of bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies.

See the latest issue of UF Law magazine about how bitcoins could become the new haven of choice for tax evaders.

Marian’s Michigan Law Review paper, “Are Cryptocurrencies ‘Super’ Tax Havens?” gained national attention and has positioned him as a leading expert on the topic.

Marian, an international tax scholar and member of the top-ranked Graduate Tax Program, has been cited or quoted on bitcoin in Politico, Forbes and two articles in the Wall Street Journal.

UF Law will deepen its discussion of taxes by featuring National Taxpayer Advocate Nina E. Olson on Friday, Jan. 31, at 11 a.m. at UF Law in the Chesterfield Smith Ceremonial Classroom, Holland Hall 180.

UF Law’s tax program is ranked as the No. 1 public university and among the top three in the nation by U.S. News & World Report.
