Does Binance Send a 1099?

Binance, one of the world’s leading cryptocurrency exchanges, does not currently send 1099 forms to its US-based customers. This is because Binance is not considered a US financial institution and is not required to do so.

However, this may change in the future if Binance’s operations in the US are subject to greater regulation.

Binance was founded in 2017 and is headquartered in Malta. The exchange allows users to trade a variety of cryptocurrencies, including Bitcoin, Ethereum, Litecoin, and more.

Binance also has its own native cryptocurrency, called Binance Coin (BNB).

Binance is one of the most popular cryptocurrency exchanges in the world and has millions of users. The exchange has been growing rapidly and has expanded into several new markets in recent months.

Despite its popularity, Binance has faced some challenges in the past. In 2018, the exchange was hacked and 7,000 BTC (worth about $40 million at the time) was stolen.

Binance has since reimbursed all affected users from its own funds.

In 2019, Binance came under scrutiny from the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) for offering unlicensed securities. The SEC ordered Binance to stop trading certain digital assets that were considered securities.

However, Binance has since relaunched these assets as “non-security” tokens.

As of now, it does not seem likely that Binance will be sending 1099 forms to its US customers anytime soon. However, this could change if Binance’s operations in the US are subject to greater regulation in the future.
