Recipients are required to respond to this letter within 30 days of the date listed on the letter and requires all crypto transactions between the years of 2013 to 2017 be reported. Recipients of letter 6173 have the following options:If you failed to report for one year or all years from 2013-2017.Submit delinquent returns as soon as possible.
