Check out the tweet that Cardano posted below.
Another win on the horizon.☀️
US Congress writes to the IRS to explain why PoS block rewards should not be taxed as income. @CardanoStiftung‘s work to promote the education of PoS technologies via our membership w/ @alliance_pos is yielding results. https://t.co/pcYbvqWQCP

Someone commented: “How about not pay it either way. The IRS has the audacity to ask for taxes after the FED injected trillions of dollars into the economy. They can get bent.”
One other followewr said: “This is needed to resolve the uncertainty factor and enhance adoption.”
Asking for the guidance of the taxation of block rewards
“Today, Congressman David Schweikert (AZ-06), Co-Chair of the Congressional Blockchain Caucus, along with Caucus Co-Chairs Congressman Bill Foster (IL-11), Congressman Tom Emmer (MN-06), and Congressman Darren Soto (FL-09) sent a letter to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) asking for guidance on the taxation of “block rewards” in a proof of stake network,” – this is how the US Congress’ letter begins.
They continue and explain, “Currently, taxpayers are not given guidance for how participating in “staking” should be treated, which could result in unintentionally dissuading participation in this new technology.”
We recommend that you check out the complete letter in order to see all the details.
