Understanding and reporting your cryptocurrency taxes can be a complex task. That’s why Trust Wallet joined forces with Coinpanda, Koinly, and CoinTracker to simplify your crypto tax filing. This guide will help you learn how to report your crypto taxes in a user-friendly way using Trust Wallet. Let’s dive in!
Note: The tax tools feature in Trust Wallet is optional. Please consult a tax advisor to understand the local tax laws and obligations in your local region.
Understanding Crypto Taxes
First, it's important to realize that crypto taxes are part of your legal obligations. Regardless of where you live, most tax authorities treat cryptocurrencies as a form of property, meaning you must pay taxes on any gains realized from your crypto investments. Whether you are liable to pay taxes on your crypto or not is your responsibility to find out – so we encourage you to check the local laws for your region if you’d like to ensure you’re compliant.
Trust Wallet's Crypto Tax Integration
To simplify the tax reporting process, Trust Wallet has teamed up with Coinpanda, Koinly, and CoinTracker. These integrations allow you to generate a full tax report and gain insights into your crypto and NFT holdings. The aim is to help you report your taxes easily, accurately, and without the usual complexity of manual inputs.
Before you get started
Before we dive into using the integrated tax tools, you’ll need to create a wallet if you don’t already have one. Trust Wallet is available as a mobile app or you can get the Trust Wallet Extension for your desktop web browser. In this example, we’ll set up a new wallet using the Trust Wallet Mobile App.
Step 1: Download the latest version of the Trust Wallet App.
Step 2: Set up your new wallet
Open the Trust Wallet app, and choose “Create a new wallet.”
Select an option to back up your wallet.
Once your wallet is set up, tap on “Start using Trust Wallet.”
Tip: If you already have a wallet that’s not Trust Wallet, you can choose to import that wallet. In this case, you’d choose the “I already have a wallet” option. Accessing Trust Wallet’s integrated tax tools
