Your Trust Wallet taxes will vary depending on your transactions and where you live - but generally speaking, you’ll pay either Capital Gains Tax or Income Tax on your Trust Wallet transactions.

Does Trust Wallet report to the IRS?

No. Trust Wallet doesn’t report to the IRS. But if you’re wondering whether the IRS can link you to your Trust Wallet account… the answer isn’t quite so simple.

How do I file my Trust Wallet taxes?

You need to report any gains, losses or income from crypto investments to your tax office, including from your Trust Wallet account. Generally, this is done as part of your annual tax return. 

You can do this yourself by identifying all your taxable transactions, the kind of tax that applies, your capital gains and losses for each disposal and the fair market value in your fiat currency of any crypto income… but it’s time consuming.

This is why most investors opt to use crypto tax software like Koinly. Koinly does all this for you and generates your tax report, ready to file with your tax office. Here’s how it works…

Koinly works by importing your Trust Wallet transaction data. Let's look at an example - here's some transactions in a Trust Wallet account.

How to connect Koinly and Trust Wallet automatically

You'll need to connect each blockchain/coin you interact with via Trust Wallet to Koinly individually via your public address. This is easy to do, you just need to get the public address for each blockchain from Trust Wallet. Here's how.

On Trust Wallet

  1. Log in and head to the home page
  2. Select the blockchain you want to connect - for example, Ethereum
  3. Select receive
  4. Copy the public address
  5. Now head over to Koinly

  5. Click connect blockchain

Pleae note, there are some blockchains where you'll need your xpub key instead. See instructions below for these blockchains.

For Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, Dogecoin, Dash, LiteCoin and BSV

Trust Wallet no longer provides the xpub/ypub keys. Don't worry, you can follow this guide on how to generate your xpub key instead.

Important

1. When you're syncing Trust Wallet via API, you'll need to repeat these steps for each different coin you're syncing. For example, you would need to sync Dogecoin and Bitcoin separately.

2. If you can't find your coin, this means Koinly can't yet auto-sync transactions for that coin yet. We're always working on supporting new coins. so please let us know if this is the case for you and we'll get it added as soon as we can.

3. Trust Wallet doesn't yet feature an option for exporting transaction data via CSV file, so the API integration method is the best way to integrate your Trust Wallet with Koinly.
