The Indonesian government issued a regulation for tax rates in crypto trading called the Minister of Finance Regulation Number 68 of 2022. Even so, crypto is still far from legal as a legal tender in Indonesia. The legal product that regulates legal tender in Indonesia has been written down in Law Number 7 of 2011 which explains that the currency for payment instrument is Rupiah.

After a long time, the Government of Indonesia has enacted regulations governing crypto currency and regulations regarding crypto taxes in Law Number 7 of 2021 which regulates the harmonization of Tax Regulations with implementing regulations issued by Regulation of the Minister of Finance Number 68 of 2022 concerning Value Added Tax. and Income Tax on Crypto Asset Trading Transactions in Indonesia.

Cryptocurrency Tax in the World

This regulation on crypto taxes makes Indonesia one of several countries that have regulated taxation in the trading of crypto assets. There are a number of similarities and differences in treating cryptocurrencies around the world according to what has been explained in the book entitled 'Taxing Cryptocurrency: A Review and a Call for Consensus' published in 2021 written by Khanna, A. There are differences regarding the rules that discuss taxation of cryptocurrencies. This regulatory difference stems from how the government of a country views cryptocurrencies, whether they use cryptocurrencies as a legal currency for a medium of payment or transactions.

1. Japan

Japan is a country where you will get to know a strong culture and history such as samurai, ninja, and anime. I like the anime 'Kuroko No Basuke', 'Naruto', and several other series. The country, known as the country of the rising sun or the country of sakura, provides tax arrangements for cryptocurrencies with the consideration that cryptocurrencies are included in other income which means taxable assets. Therefore, Japan reportedly imposes a tax of up to 55% per individual which is more expensive than the tax on shares of 20% per individual in Japan. High taxes on crypto in Japan are a problem for the good of the name 'Satoshi Nakamoto'.

2. Hong Kong

The best news comes from Hong Kong which considers cryptocurrencies a virtual commodity. Hong Kong has also regulated the terms of investment and trading of cryptocurrencies. From what I found, Hong Kong does not apply a tax on the sale of shares owed on the sale of this cryptocurrency. In another case Hong Kong published rules regarding cryptocurrencies used for business transactions. Another case, if an individual uses cryptocurrency as a long-term investment, then the profits from that long-term investment will not be taxed.

3. China

China, a country with a long story of three kingdoms, origin of dragons, monkey king sun go kong, and kung fu and the beauty of a strong culture is the economic ruler of almost half the world. China reportedly did not recognize cryptocurrencies as legal tender which later did not allow mining for bitcoins. As a rule, China, known as the Bamboo Curtain Country, publishes rules regarding Income Tax on profits made from the sale of cryptocurrencies which means --- when a personal taxpayer buys cryptocurrency and then sells it and makes a profit from the sale, the profit will be charged. Value-added tax.

4. India

The Minister of Finance of India, Nirmala Sitharaman, published the newly revised rules that will come into effect from April 1, 2022 regarding the cryptocurrency tax. The Minister of Finance of India, Nirmala Sitharaman, stipulates about any income i.e., profits generated from the transfer of virtual digital assets (VDA) within national borders will be taxed at a rate of 30 per cent. So India followed Japan to impose high taxes on cryptocurrencies. An example of tax calculation is an Indian citizen buying bitcoins for USD 40,000 per coin and then selling them for USD 60,000. The individual will be responsible for paying a flat tax of 30 percent of the $20,000 profit he/she realizes as part of the transaction. This country which is known for its beautiful dance has become a country full of conflicts about crypto investment on social media.

5. Kazakhstan

Kazakhstan's Minister of National Economy, Alibek Kuantyrov raised taxes for entities that mine cryptocurrencies as Kazakhstan became a magnet for Bitcoin miners after China banned Bitcoin mining. It is quite natural that Crypto Miners operating in Kazakhstan are currently paying additional fees for the electricity consumed than other consumers who are paying the electricity fees. Or in other words, there is a different setting for the electricity tariff if you choose to mine crypto with an additional fee such as 1 Kazakh tenge around USD 0.0022 per kilowatt-hour of power.

6. Russia

The head of the Financial Market Committee of the Russian State Duma, Anatoly Aksakov said amendments to the federal tax code on cryptocurrencies became official this year. The country known as the Land of the Red Bear. Will this proposed tax on cryptocurrencies help the war-torn Russia's economy?

Besides that there is



Georgia and Illinois
