  • Argentina’s President has removed a key clause from the Omnibus bill.
  • The Omnibus bill touches on various areas, including personal taxes.
  • The move aims to pave the way for the bill’s success in Congress.

Crypto holders in Argentina may not have to “repatriate” their digital assets abroad following President Javier Milei’s decision to exclude crypto tax proposals from the controversial Omnibus bill.

Introduced in December, the Omnibus bill seeks to reform various laws in areas like personal taxes, import laws, education, and justice administration. The bill’s extensive scope encompassed a fiscal part with provisions that required taxpayers to declare previously undisclosed assets, including cryptocurrencies.

President Milei Reverses Course on Crypto Tax Reform

According to a local media outlet report, President Javier Milei and Economy Minister Luis Caputo have removed the fiscal part from the bill, effectively sidelining the crypto tax proposals.


The Minister of the Interior, Guillermo Francos, revealed that the fiscal clause delayed the bill’s progress in Congress, prompting the executive to “withdraw that part and advance on the issues that have consensus.”

“The Base Law is aimed at generating freedom for economic development. It was essential to get this done quickly. The fiscal part was minor and delayed processing.” Francos stated.

The government’s move to slash crypto tax proposals from the bill has confused the implications and taxation of digital assets in Argentina.

Per Marcos Zocaro, a knowledgeable accountant quoted in the report, the remaining “important” taxes that cover crypto in Argentina are Profits and Personal Assets. While users are not required to pay taxes for acquiring digital assets, the government will tax the profit generated from their sales.
