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 eToro Generate My Tax Forms?

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

Are you confused on how to file your eToro taxes? 

You’re not alone. Cryptocurrency tax reporting can feel overwhelming, even for investors with years of experience. 

In this guide, we’ll share everything you need to know on how to file your eToro taxes. We’ll cover the basics of cryptocurrency taxation and walk through a simple process that can help you file your eToro taxes in minutes.

Does eToro issue tax forms? 

Currently, eToro issues Form 1099-MISC to customers who earn more than $600 of income during a tax year. 

eToro also issues 1099-B and 1099-K to customers.

It’s important to note that these tax forms may contain errors if you’ve transferred cryptocurrency into or out of eToro (more on this later). 

What is the FIFO method? 

eToro’s tax forms calculate capital gains and losses according to first-in first-out (FIFO). However, it’s important to remember that the IRS also allows for specific identification methods when calculating your crypto taxes (which can help reduce your tax bill in some circumstances). 

For more information, check out our complete guide to FIFO, HIFO, and LIFO

Does eToro report to the IRS? 

As noted earlier, eToro does send 1099-MISC forms to both customers and the IRS. 

In the future, eToro and other exchanges will likely be required to send more comprehensive tax information to the IRS. The American infrastructure bill requires all exchanges to send 1099-B reporting information to customers and the IRS.

Do I receive tax documents for stock/ETF trading on eToro? 

Tax documents for stock/ETF trading on eToro are filed with the IRS, and are available for download under Tax Documents in your Account Settings. 

When will my eToro tax documents be available?

Typically, crypto exchanges send 1099 forms that detail taxable income during a tax year to customers by February 15 of the following year. 

Why are my eToro tax forms inaccurate? 

If you’ve transferred your crypto into our out of eToro, your tax forms may be inaccurate. 

This is a common problem for cryptocurrency exchanges. Because crypto investors often transfer their holdings between different wallets, exchanges often don’t have access to information about cost basis they need to calculate taxes.
