How are Quant (QNT) tokens taxed?
Crypto tax rules depend on where you live, so check out our crypto tax guides for specific information for your country. But generally speaking, two taxes may apply to your QNT transactions:
Capital Gains Tax: Selling or swapping QNT tokens? You’ll usually pay Capital Gains Tax on any gain you make as a result of the transaction.
Income Tax: When you earn new QNT tokens - for example, through Binance Earn - this may be seen as additional income and subject to Income Tax based on the fair market value of your QNT tokens at the time you received them.
Can the IRS track QNT?
The burning question on every investor's mind - can the IRS track crypto?
QNT is an Ethereum token - and Ethereum, like most other blockchains, is a public ledger. Anyone can search for a given address to look at the transactions made - including the IRS. If the IRS can link your identity to a given wallet or transaction - then they may know about your investments.
As well as this, if you've traded or otherwise invested in QNT using centralized exchanges, many of these exchanges issue 1099 forms disclosing earnings to both users and the IRS. In other words, you should report your QNT transactions accurately to avoid crypto tax penalties from the IRS.
How to get Quant (QNT) tax documents
You'll usually report your gains or income from crypto - including QNT tokens - as part of your annual tax return. To do this, you need to calculate your gains, losses, and income from QNT.
So you'll need to identify each taxable transaction involving QNT tokens, and the kind of tax that applies. Then you'll need to calculate a capital gain or loss for every time you sold or swapped QNT tokens, as well as calculate the fair market value in your fiat currency for any QNT tokens viewed as additional income.
Not only do you need to do this for QNT, but for every cryptocurrency you've invested in, which means it's really time-consuming for most investors. But using a crypto tax calculator like Koinly can save you hours. Koinly can calculate your gains, losses, and income for more than 450,000 ERC-20 tokens - including QNT. You just need to connect Ethereum to Koinly to do so using your public address.
How to import QNT transactions to Koinly automatically
To import your QNT transactions into Koinly, you’ll need to connect each Ethereum wallet you use to Koinly.
This is really easy to do, you just need your public address - but remember, you’ll need to do this for each Ethereum wallet you use to interact with QNT in order for Koinly to correctly identify your cost basis, transfers, sales, swaps, and more.
You can find steps on how to connect a variety of popular wallets to Koinly on our integration pages, but here’s an example of how it generally works.
In your wallet
Open or log in to your wallet
Copy your public address
Sign up or log in to your Koinly account and go to the wallets page
Search for and select Ethereum
Give your wallet a name
Paste your public address
Remember, you’ll need to do this for every wallet you use to interact with QNT tokens in order to calculate your crypto taxes correctly.
It’s really helpful to name your wallets when you’re adding them to Koinly. This can help you find any transactions you believe have errors later on much more easily!
You may also be able to upload your transaction history to Koinly as a CSV file instead of connecting using your public address if you prefer, but this depends on the wallet you’re using. You can search for your wallet on our integration pages to find out more about how to get a CSV file from your wallet.
