How Cryptocurrency Taxes Work

Cryptocurrencies like bitcoin are treated as property by many governments around the world—including the U.S. Other forms of property that you may be familiar with include stocks, bonds, and real-estate.

Just like these other forms of property, cryptocurrencies are subject to capital gains and losses rules, and you need to report your gains, losses, and income generated from your crypto investments on your taxes.

For a complete and in-depth overview, please refer to our Complete Guide to Cryptocurrency Taxes.

How To Do Your Crypto Taxes

To do your cryptocurrency taxes, you need to calculate your gains, losses, and income from your cryptocurrency investments in your home fiat currency (e.g. US Dollar, Australian Dollar, etc.).

Once you have your calculations, you can fill out the necessary tax forms required by your country. If you are in the United States, you can learn which forms you need to fill out with our blog post: How to Report Cryptocurrency On Your Taxes.

Why Can't Celsius Generate My Tax Forms?

Many cryptocurrency investors use additional exchanges, wallets, and platforms outside of Celsius. Perhaps you also trade on Coinbase or earn interest from BlockFi. The trouble with Celsius's reporting is that it only extends as far as the Celsius platform. If you use additional cryptocurrency wallets, exchanges, DeFi protocols, or other platforms outside of Celsius, Celsius can't provide complete gains, losses, and income tax information.

Wondering how to report taxes on your Celsius holdings?

Celsius is a cryptocurrency platform that launched in 2018. The platform was famous for offering high interest on certain assets — in some cases, as high as 17% APY.
