Does Binance report to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS)?

Do I have to pay taxes on my Binance transactions?

In the United States, cryptocurrency is subject to capital gains tax and income tax. 

If you’ve earned or disposed of crypto (ex. Sold or traded away cryptocurrency) during the year, you’ll have a tax liability to report to the IRS.
