How to file your Nexo taxes with Koinly

Nexo announced its shutting down all services in the US in December 2022. Currently, it's unclear whether US users will be able to export their transaction history from Nexo once services are withdrawn. We advise our users to export their complete transaction data as a CSV file ASAP to ensure they can easily file their taxes with the IRS in case their transaction data later becomes unavailable.

How are Nexo transactions taxed?

You’ll pay either Capital Gains Tax or Income Tax on your Nexo transactions, depending on your specific transactions and how your tax office views it. You can learn more about crypto tax in your country in our crypto tax guides, but in brief:

  • Capital Gains Tax: Whenever you sell or swap crypto on Nexo and make a gain, you’ll likely pay Capital Gains Tax on that gain.

  • Income Tax: If you earned new tokens on Nexo - for example, NEXO tokens from Earn products - this is generally viewed as additional income and subject to Income Tax upon receipt.

Does Nexo report to the IRS?

Nexo announced it would withdraw services from the US due to a lack of regulatory clarity. Part of this was due to increased pressure from the IRS to disclose transaction information. As such, it’s unlikely Nexo has or will report to the IRS.

How do I file my Nexo taxes?

There are two ways to create tax forms for Nexo. It can be done manually or with crypto tax software like Koinly.

Doing it yourself? You'll need to identify your taxable transactions, including any capital gain or loss and income, as well as your cost basis or the fair market value of any crypto tokens on the day you received them in fiat currency. Then take all of this information and submit it in the required format for your local tax office.

Alternatively, use Koinly to do this for you. Koinly calculates your tax liability and generates your crypto tax report, ready to file with your tax office. Here’s how to connect.
