Calculating capital gains/losses for Bitcoin isn't always straightforward. Do you know the cost-basis of every coin you own? Are you tracking the profits and new basis when you spend or sell? Can you work out the best way to identify your trades to optimize your taxes?
Let us do it for you.
Our three-part series explains the tax consequences of trading or spending Bitcoin and other digital currencies.
Also read about how you can file capital losses to pay less taxes, how to calculate your mining income and finally how to use BitcoinTaxes to completely calculate and fill in your 1040 Schedule D or import into TurboTax® and TaxACT®.
Simply import details of any Bitcoins or alt-coins you have bought or sold from one of our supported trading exchanges, add any spending or donations you might have made from your wallets, any mined coins or income you have received, and we'll work your tax position for you.
You can compare using different cost-basis methodologies, including FIFO, LIFO, and average costing, as well as comparing like-kind treatment.
We'll show your Capital Gains Report detailing every transaction's cost basis, sale proceeds and gain.
An Income Report with all the calculated mined values.
A Donation Report with cost basis information for gifts and tips.
And your Closing Report with your net profit and loss and cost basis going forward.
Your Capital Gains are also ready to import directly into tax software, such as TurboTax® and TaxACT®, attach as a statement to your tax return or even print as a PDF.
