  3. Remember to export files for all your transactions:
    • deposits
    • withdrawals
    • trade history
    • interest payments
    • staking rewards

How are Coinbase Wallet transactions taxed?

The exact tax implications on Coinbase Wallet transactions depend on which country you live in and the type of transactions you have made. In general, you must pay either capital gains tax or income tax on your cryptocurrency transactions using Coinbase Wallet.

  • Capital gains tax: Whenever you sell a cryptocurrency for more than you purchased it for, you generate a capital gain. On the other hand, if you sell the cryptocurrency for less than you paid initially, you have a capital loss, which can offset other gains in most cases.
  • Income tax: Earned cryptocurrency using Coinbase Wallet, such as staking, interest, and airdrops, is typically seen as taxable income from a tax perspective and must be reported in your tax return.

How do I file my Coinbase Wallet taxes?

First, you must calculate capital gains and income from all taxable transactions from Coinbase Wallet. When you have this information ready, you can report capital gains and income together with other forms of income such as employment and dividends in your annual tax return.

To calculate your capital gains, you must first export a complete history of all transactions made using Coinbase Wallet. Once you have this data, you can calculate your capital gains or losses by determining the price at which you bought the cryptocurrency (your cost basis) and the price at which you sold it (your proceeds). Luckily, Coinpanda can help you with this and generate ready-to-file tax forms quickly and easily.

After downloading your Coinbase Wallet tax statements from Coinpanda, the last step is to report the capital gains and income on your tax return before the deadline. Most countries allow you to self-declare taxes online in 2023, but you can also get help from a professional tax accountant to file taxes for you.
