Our Mission

Let’s face it, crypto tax is complicated.

Lawmakers don’t understand cryptocurrencies, defi, staking, NFTs, blockchain technology, or any of the groundbreaking tokens, or technologies. 

It’s our personal goal to make taxes on anything crypto easy. 

Our founder and lead accountant, Mike Ring, has had multiple meetings with the IRS discussing the current crypto tax laws and responsible regulations as we move into a world where crypto is a staple of the world economy. 

Our services are completely done for you. Our clients include individual traders and hodlers, accounts and accounting firms, to crypto millionaires, doctors and lawyers.

The help and service I got from Brian and his team were great. My crypto taxes were hard to understand. I was really stressed out about how to figure out taxes for all the trades that happen on different blockchains and are taxed. Then I found Blockchain Crypto Tax Prep. Talking to a real person right away made me feel better, and the rest of the process was great. Their team is quick to respond and does a great job. I’m glad I found this place.

If you are involved with crypto trading, buying, selling, holding, etc., I will give you the best advice right now. I wish someone had given me this advice four years ago. Don’t try to do your crypto taxes yourself; do not waste your time, money, or energy on any of the “Automated Crypto Tax Software Programs.” Get it right the first time and get a free consultation with Brian at Blockchain Crypto Tax Prep.I had a lot going on with my crypto; I used multiple exchanges and was heavily into defi, hot and cold wallets, multiple staking protocols, lending pools, earn programs, etc. And I had a couple of unique situations that I was nervous even bringing up, thinking he might say that’s a bit much or we handle the basics, but he took all my worries away that night. I put myself through countless hours (dozens, many dozens) of stressful-filled hell trying to straighten out my crypto taxes. I wasted hundreds of dollars on worthless automated software programs that outright lied about what they offered in terms of support and the capabilities of their software. If you need help with your crypto taxes, and trust me, if you are doing them yourself, “DON’T.” You need help to keep up with all the tax laws and changes. And don’t count on these crypto tax software plans; sure, you might get your form 8949 and think life is great until you realize they have yet to update the software for the last 3, 6, 9 months, or more. The crypto landscape is changing rapidly, and I’m telling you, those software programs are not the answer.At Blockchain Crypto Tax Prep, you deal with real professionals; these guys and gals (and pronouns) know this industry. They know the crypto tax laws and regulations; it’s what they do, it’s not a hobby, it’s their profession, and every client either builds or breaks their reputation, and all I could find was one hell of a solidly built reputation. Call Brian and let him put your mind at ease like he did for me. Thanks to Brian and his team, I can finally begin to enjoy all my hard work over the past 4 or 5 years. I try not to live with regrets as it accomplishes nothing, so instead of complaining about not finding or wishing I had found Brian and Blockchain Crypto Tax Prep sooner, I will express my gratitude for having found them when I did. Thank you, Brian and everyone at Blockchain Crypto Tax Prep. You have earned a customer for years to come.Sincerely,Howard Grant Platt III

Brian and the team at Blockchain Crypto Tax Prep are a life saver. I was so stressed on how to figure out taxes for all the transactions that are taxable events across multiple blockchains. Brian just needed a CSV from each DEX and each wallet address which was easy to get and they did the rest. Amazing!

I was referred here by our accountant. They turned around what we needed in less than a week, but more importantly, they were able to answer all the questions I had. Will be using them again.

The service and support I got from Mike and his team was excellent. My crypto tax situation was complex because of the reporting deficiencies from the crypto exchanges. I tried using automated systems that are available online to prepare my tax forms but had no success. Then I found Blockchain Crypto Tax Prep, I got to talk to a real person right away which was very reassuring, and the process that followed was great. Their team is responsive and very effective. I’m very happy I landed here.
