Still No Tax on Crypto Transactions, Koreans Euphoria Continues


Koreans are still enjoying their freedom. The kind of joy you derives when you make millions on millions and yet not pay a single tax. 

Why is that so? It’s because Cryptocurrency transactions are still tax-free in South Korea due to a lack of tax regulations. As the law stands, citizens are able to profit millions of won from cryptocurrencies without being required to pay taxes on them.

A South Korean Lawyer recently revealed by saying :

“I made a profit of nearly 30 million won last year on investments in bitcoin and ether, but I did not pay any tax on virtual currency investments,”

Now, the above is what we are referring to as the Joy derived from being tax free after making Millions.

The news outlet, Money Today reported:

There is no obligation to pay tax even if you earn hundreds of thousands of won or even hundreds of millions of won in virtual currency investments.

Meanwhile, when selling stocks, there is a sales tax of 0.3% for listed securities and 0.5% for unlisted ones, the news outlet detailed.
