How to file your Celsius taxes with Koinly

The Celsius app and web versions are shutting down on Feb 28, 2024. Download your transaction history in CSV format before this day. Here’s how.

Celsius Network was a popular CeFi lending platform that attracted more than 1.7 million investors looking to earn passive income on their held assets. However, in June 2022, Celsius paused all withdrawals and filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in July 2022, leaving many investors unable to access their funds. Despite this, you may still need to report your taxable Celsius transactions to your tax office - and Koinly can help. Here’s how.


Follow these steps to sync your Celsius Network data automatically to Koinly:

Celsius paused all withdrawals, swaps and transfers on the 12th of June 2022 and filed for bankruptcy on the 14th of July 2022. Despite this, users may still need to report any taxable transactions on Celsius prior to the platform halting operations. The Celsius site is still operational at the time of writing, although a pop-up appears warning the company has filed for bankruptcy. If you close the pop up, you should still be able to log in to your Celsius account and export your transaction history.

Does Celsius report to the IRS?

Yes, Celsius reported to the IRS. Any time you received a 1099 form from Celsius, the IRS received an identical copy.

How do I file my Celsius taxes?

Celsius bankruptcy proceedings may drag on for several years - much like the Mt. Gox proceedings. While investors may eventually see some of their funds returned, it’s unlikely to happen any time soon.

Worse still, you may still need to report your taxable transactions on Celsius prior to the collapse to your tax office as part of your annual tax return - but Koinly can help.

Koinly works by importing your Celsius transaction data to analyze what's taxable, and what's not.
