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 Pancake Swap Generate My Tax Forms?

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

How to Do Your PancakeSwap Taxes in Minutes

Trying to report your PancakeSwap taxes to the IRS? 

Because decentralized exchanges don’t provide tax forms to users, trying to collect the information you need to file your tax return can be a struggle. 

In this guide, we’ll break down everything you need to know about PancakeSwap tax reporting. We’ll discuss how different PancakeSwap transactions are taxed and share a simple 3-step process to help you file your PancakeSwap taxes in minutes. 

What is PancakeSwap? 

PancakeSwap is a decentralized exchange built on the Binance Smart Chain (BSC). PancakeSwap leverages BSC to offer low transaction fees to users. 

On PancakeSwap, users can swap BEP20 tokens, add trading liquidity, and receive staking rewards. In September 2021, it was estimated that the protocol had more than 2.8 million active users. 

How is cryptocurrency taxed?

How are crypto-to-crypto trades on PancakeSwap taxed? 

In general, crypto-to-crypto trades are considered a disposal. You’ll incur a capital gain or loss depending on how the price of the cryptocurrency you’re trading away has changed since you originally received it. 

How is adding/removing liquidity on PancakeSwap taxed? 

The IRS has not released guidance on how adding/removing liquidity to DeFi protocols like PancakeSwap is taxed. 

The conservative approach is to treat adding/removing liquidity as a taxable crypto-to-crypto swap. With this approach, you would incur a capital gain or loss depending on how the price of the crypto you’re swapping has changed since you originally received it. 

A more aggressive approach is to treat adding/removing liquidity as a non-taxable deposit/withdrawal.

How are staking rewards on PancakeSwap taxed? 

Staking rewards are considered ordinary income based on their fair market value upon receipt. For more information, check out our complete guide to staking taxes

Does PancakeSwap report to the IRS? 

At this time, DeFi protocols like PancakeSwap are not required to report to the IRS. 

Still, it’s important to remember that all transactions on PancakeSwap are publicly viewable on the Binance Smart Chain. In the past, the IRS has partnered with contractors like Chainalysis to analyze the blockchain and track cryptocurrency transactions

How do I keep track of my PancakeSwap taxes? 

Most decentralized exchanges do not send tax forms to users. Because transferring crypto from wallet to wallet is so common, exchanges don’t have access to information on cost basis that’s needed to calculate your capital gains. 

Unfortunately, tracking your cryptocurrency taxes on your own can be difficult. To accurately file your taxes, you’ll need to have complete information on each of your cryptocurrency disposals — including your cost basis, gross proceeds, and the date of receipt and disposal. Collecting this information can take hours of time and effort. 

Luckily, there’s an easier way. Cryptocurrency tax software like CoinLedger can help you generate a complete tax report in minutes. Simply connect your wallets and exchanges, and CoinLedger can calculate your capital gains and income. 

How to report your PancakeSwap taxes in 3 steps 

Here’s how you can report your PancakeSwap taxes on CoinLedger in 3 simple steps. 

  1. In the Import section of CoinLedger, choose ‘Binance Smart Chain’.
  2. Next, enter your Binance Smart Chain wallet address. 
  3. CoinLedger will pull your BSC transactions directly from the blockchain. 

And that’s it! Once you’ve connected your other wallets and exchanges, you’ll be able to generate comprehensive cryptocurrency capital gains and ordinary income tax reports with the click of a button.
