NFL Star, Odell Beckham Junior’s Bitcoin Salary with Tax Payment Barriers
Odell Beckham Junior’s BTC salary payment gives a clear warning to those wishing to receive their income in Bitcoin. On November 12, 2021, Beckham signed a one-year contract with the Los Angeles Rams worth $750,000. He announced that he would be receiving 100% of his $750,000 yearly salary in Bitcoin. At the time of pronouncement, the BTC price was around $69,044. Two days after he had signed the Rams deal, Bitcoin dropped by 46% from that high which is worth $36,972.
According to the Rams deal, the entire salary is now worth only $413,000 compared to the original income of $750,000. From every indication, the crypto investors have to pay tax on the amount of it’s worth when it was received, not what it’s worth when they lodge their tax return. For the tax payment, Federal and State taxes have a cumulative rate of 50.3%. Beckham will only have earned $35,000 over the past two and a half months, which is equal to 1 BTC. However, Beckham would have received $90,000 if he had agreed to take his salary in fiat currency.
Nevertheless, after the retracement, the BTC price is hovering above the $36,000 support as Bitcoin faces rejection at $39K. Nonetheless, if the downward move has continued unabated, the market will decline to the $30,000 psychological price level.
