How to connect Polygon with API
We are only requesting view permissions. This does not give us access to your private keys or the ability to move your funds.
Coinpanda will automatically sync all transactions from a Polygon public address you add. You will most likely find your public address after logging in to your Polygon wallet. Next, copy and paste the address into Coinpanda, and all transactions will be imported automatically!
Not sure how to find the public address of your wallet? We have written instruction articles for the most popular cryptocurrency wallets used today on our integration pages.
Remember that you must add all your wallet addresses to Coinpanda for your tax calculations to be accurate. This also includes wallet addresses you are not actively using anymore.
Due to the complexity of ETH and other EVM chains, we update the API integration for Polygon every week. If you suspect one or more transactions were previously not imported correctly, we recommend deleting and reimporting all transactions, which should normally fix the issue.
If you still see a transaction not imported correctly, please reach out to us so that we can look into it. We can usually fix any import errors within a few days.
How to connect Polygon with CSV
Follow these steps to export your transactions from Polygon:
Unfortunately, Polygon does not allow exporting your transaction history as a CSV file. Because of this, the best solution is to import using API in most cases. If you still want to use file upload, you can try exporting a CSV file from any block explorer instead.
You can also add transactions by uploading the Coinpanda generic file. We support both XLSX and CSV formats. Please follow the steps described in this guide.
How are Polygon transactions taxed?
The exact tax implications on Polygon 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 Polygon transactions except transfers between your own wallets.
To learn more about how Polygon transactions are taxed in your country, we recommend reading our in-depth guides to cryptocurrency taxes.
How do I file my Polygon taxes?
First, you must calculate capital gains from all taxable Polygon 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 Polygon 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 Polygon 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.
