IRS Explains Taxability of Crowdfunding Income

Bear in mind that the income raised by crowdfunding may be taxable. The IRS recently published a fact sheet that addresses whether the money raised is taxable and details reporting requirements. It explains that the money raised in a crowdfunding campaign may not have to be included in the organizer’s individual gross income if all the money is distributed to the campaign’s beneficiary.
