Tax Loss on Binance USD (BUSD)

Binance USD (BUSD) is a stablecoin, which is a type of cryptocurrency that's pegged to the value of a fiat currency (in this case, the US dollar). A tax loss on Binance USD would occur if you sold the BUSD at a lower price than what you initially paid for it, resulting in a loss. This loss can be used to offset any capital gains you may have realized during the tax year.

For example, let's say you purchased 1,000 BUSD for $1 each, resulting in a total investment of $1,000. If you sold those BUSD for $0.90 each, you would have received $900, resulting in a $100 loss.

If the net amount of all your gains and losses is a loss, you can report the loss on schedule D of form 1040 up to $3,000. Losses beyond that amount can be deducted on future returns as a capital loss carryover until the loss is all used up.
