For example, Gemini is offering a credit card that pays 3% or 2% or 1% rewards for each purchase when each credit card transaction posts.
I am assuming the rewards are taxed, but not sure how. I see a couple of possibilities:
1) INCOME. Could they be earnings income, which would be subject to income tax?
2) CAPITAL GAINS. When I eventually sell the Bitcoin would it be capital gains(loss) and if so would it then use a $0.00 basis amount?
The credit card offer seemed like a great idea, but on reflecting I cannot figure the tax implications. Anyone know more about this?
