How are Lisk transactions taxed?
The exact tax implications on Lisk transactions depend on which country you live in and the type of transactions you have made. However, in most countries, you must generally pay capital gains tax on all Lisk transactions except transfers between your own wallets.

How do I file my Lisk taxes?
First, you must calculate capital gains from all taxable Lisk transactions. When this information is ready, you have everything you need to report capital gains in your annual tax return. However, the actual procedure for reporting crypto tax in the tax return might vary from country to country.
To calculate your capital gains, you must first export a complete history of all transactions made on the Lisk blockchain. 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 Lisk tax statements from Coinpanda, the last step is to report the capital gains 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.
How do I troubleshoot the imported Lisk transactions to Coinpanda?
