IRS: Tokens from staking not are not taxed if unsold

Given this news, will CoinTracker mark staked transactions as 0 interest income? Does it only apply to this year, or is this retroactive?

You have to be careful how you read the article and honestly it is not well written.
TLDR:
1.Couple filed lawsuit because they felt they were taxed incorrectly.
2. Instead of going to court, IRS gave refund.
3. It is well established that IRS will sometimes do this if the amount is small or they are short on manpower. Therefore the refund does NOT set any precedent or change any policy.
4. The couple involved has refused the refund because they want to go to court and set a precedent. This could take over a year.
