Do we have to pay taxes on Crypto trading? Here is all to know

Last year, you might have seen a video of people getting rich with crypto trading. Ooh, that’s good you also got an interest in cryptocurrency. So did you invest in it? Are you thinking of it to be totally for profits and earnings, no paying!


So you are wrong. No matter if you are earning from cryptocurrency or just purchased and let it in your wallet for a year. Your cryptocurrency is also being counted as assets and you would be paying taxes over it.


But there is a whole pattern of how taxes are applied over cryptocurrency. let’s discuss it all here;


  • If you make purchases with your crypto

As I mentioned above, your cryptocurrency is also counted as an asset. Now if you spend your asset for purchasing something, it is counted in selling assets in profit. Especially when the price of your cryptocurrency has increased from the original price of that purchase. In this case, you owe some tax amount which should be paid.


  • When earned or mined

If one earns some cryptocurrency or mine it, it would also be counted to be paid under the income tax ratio. Also if you are getting cryptocurrency in case of promotional goods, you are paying tax just according to your normal income tax ratio.


Also when someone holds their hardly earned cryptocurrency for later selling at profit, you would be paying taxes according to the market value of that cryptocurrency at the time of earning. The primary thing is that its value should be increased.


There is also a brief description of how taxes are applied over all cryptocurrencies. You can check out the sections of the tax application. So, it is advised to get registered for your coming tax year and avoid losing the profits as well.


There are many ideas to lessen your tax amounts. These techniques could also give you some benefits on cryptocurrency earning and selling. Some of them are;


  • Storing currency for as long as you can

The longer you hold your cryptocurrency, there are more chances you get registered for long-term gains tax. This tax scheme applies a lesser tax amount and you can also earn high on your cryptocurrency market values.


  • Show profit and loss with your crypto earnings

  • Showing the expenditure of mining

Mining is not as easier as we think. It takes a lot of effort including the expenses of machines and electricity. Thus, jot down all your expenses and efforts and count them as expenditure over mining that cryptocurrency. It would help you reduce the tax rate.

  • Donating to charity some of your cryptocurrency

  • Think about a retirement plan in cryptocurrency
