Is an angel or vc investment in a startup taxed? At what percent?

No - Angel/VC investment in a startup is not taxed. Investments should be booked as Equity on the Balance Sheet. Convertible Notes should be booked as Short Term or Long Term Debt on the Balance Sheet.

(I’m a CPA, Deloitte Tax alum, and I personally prepare 150+ startup tax returns a year)

$250M+ VC Funding Raised
I had a great experience working with Kruze Consulting when we raised Series A. They know what VCs need to see, and how to present a startup’s books and finances. If you are going to raise venture capital, you need experts like Kruze.
