  • Capital Gains Tax: Whenever you sell or swap crypto on MEXC, you'll pay Capital Gains Tax on any profits. This may also include any realized profit when you close your position in a margin trade or futures contract.
  • Income Tax: If you're earning new tokens through MEXC Earn products - like staking, mining, or airdrops - then you'll pay Income Tax based on the fair market value of new tokens or coins on the day you receive them, in your fiat currency.
