One could hope that the IRS wont go after

a person who say holds 100 bitcoin and a few times bought items with bitcoin under $100, a $80, $60 and $10 purchase for a total of $150.

If the bitcoiner bought the items when the price was $1000 and he bought the coins at $100 he would have bought $150 worth of stuff but his cost basis was just $15 so he has a gain of $135 that tax is owed on.

Will the IRS go after that?- maybe just to learn more about the blockchain. and perhaps to harass bitcoin users.
