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 Solana Generate My Tax Forms?

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

Solana Tax Reporting

Whether you’re staking tokens, buying or selling NFTs, or swapping coins on decentralized exchanges, tracking your Solana transactions for tax reporting can get complex.

CoinLedger automatically imports Solana blockchain data to help account for all of your transaction activity.

How does it work?

Import your Solana transactions and calculate your taxes in a few easy steps:

1. Create a free CoinLedger account

2. Add your public Solana wallet address to CoinLedger

3. Generate your tax reports

And that’s it! CoinLedger handles all the data importing and number crunching on your behalf.

What is Solana? 

Solana got its start back in 2017, when founder Anatoly Yakovenko published a whitepaper about the blockchain. 

Yakovenko was a former Qualcomm engineer who believed that existing blockchains like Bitcoin and Ethereum took too long to reach consensus. To solve this problem, he envisioned a new timekeeping technique for blockchains called Proof of History. 

In 2020, the Solana blockchain launched its Mainnet Beta. By leveraging Proof of History, it promised higher transaction speeds and lower fees than the Bitcoin and Ethereum networks. 

Today, Solana is one of the world’s most popular cryptocurrencies. It’s one of the top 10 largest cryptocurrencies by market capitalization and is one of the most popular blockchains for DeFi and NFTs. 

Crypto taxes 101 

The Solana token, like other cryptocurrencies, is taxed as property. That means that it’s subject to both income and capital gains tax. 

Capital gains tax 

Any time you dispose of $SOL, you incur capital gains and losses depending on how the price has fluctuated since you originally received it. This includes: 

  • Selling SOL for fiat
  • Trading SOL for other cryptocurrencies
  • Paying in SOL to purchase goods and services

Income tax 

Earning cryptocurrency through airdrops, staking, or wages is considered personal income and will be taxed accordingly. Earning staking rewards on the Solana blockchain would fall into this category.

How are Solana transaction fees taxed? 

If you are executing transactions on the Solana blockchain, you are required to pay transaction fees. In many instances, these fees can be added to your cost basis, which can reduce your capital gains in a disposal event. 

How are Solana NFTs taxed? 

Trading NFTs is considered a crypto-to-crypto transaction. Whether you’re buying an NFT or selling one, you will incur capital gains and capital losses depending on how the value of your assets has fluctuated since you originally received them.

Can I avoid Solana taxes?

There is no legal way to evade taxes on Solana or any other blockchain. 

In recent years, the IRS has taken steps to tackle cryptocurrency tax fraud. The agency has partnered with contractors like Chainanalysis that analyze on-chain transactions to identify tax cheats.

The 2021 American infrastructure bill will likely make tax evasion even more difficult in the future. 

Why is it so difficult to report Solana taxes? 

If you’re using multiple wallets or interacting with multiple decentralized applications, tracking your taxes can become difficult. Investors often have trouble keeping a record of their cost basis across different crypto-assets, which they need to calculate capital gains.

If you find yourself in this situation, crypto tax software like CoinLedger can help. You can manually upload your transactions to easily report taxes on Solana and other crypto-assets when tax season rolls around.
