(Reuters) - The Biden administration's tax enforcement proposal unveiled on Thursday includes a proposed requirement that cryptocurrency transfers over $10,000 be reported to the Internal Revenue Service.

"As with cash transactions, businesses that receive cryptoassets with a fair market value of more than $10,000 would also be reported on," the Treasury Department said in a report released alongside its wider proposals aimed at improving tax collection.
