Do cryptocurrency earnings need to be taxed? Crypto Taxes Explained

Though Patrick recognizes there is plenty of misleading information out there telling you otherwise, cryptocurrency is, in fact, subject to federal taxes. This applies to all cryptocurrency gains, regardless of whether you are purchasing Bitcoin or anything else. Depending on your trading strategy, the rate and amount you pay can vary tremendously.

What are some strategies for minimizing future tax obligations?

One thing that Patrick made clear is that day traders will almost always end up paying more taxes than long-term holders. This is because day trading increases the amount of “taxable events” occurring within your portfolio each year. Patrick also discussed how “wash trades” have certain rules that are unique to the crypto marketplace. In order to minimize future tax obligations, you should learn more about how crypto is taxed and—depending on your current needs—also consider hiring a crypto-oriented accountant.

Ways to Prepare for Tax Season

Even if most of your taxes are not due until April, any accountant like Patrick will tell you the best way to have a stress-free tax season is to begin preparing as far in advance as you possibly can. Additionally, tracking your crypto trades on a monthly or at least a quarterly basis will make it easier to recognize how much you’ll need to end up paying. Taxation is, inevitably, a part of trading crypto. Taxation should not be viewed as an afterthought, rather, as an essential part of your overall trading strategy.
