To get started, simply connect Koinly to the Stellar blockchain via your public address or CSV file upload. Once connected, Koinly imports all your trades automatically. Next, Koinly calculates all your gains, income and expenses with easy-to-spot totals ready for your tax return. At tax time, simply download the Koinly tax report for your country, and you’re good to file!
You can find your public address in the wallet you use to interact with Stellar- for example, Guarda, Atomic or Stronghold.
We have instructions on how to do this for a variety of popular wallets on our integration pages.
Please note: you’ll need to add your public address from every wallet you use to interact with XLM in order for Koinly to calculate your crypto taxes correctly.
Depending on the XLM wallet you’re using, you may be able to export a CSV file of your transaction history from your wallet. We’ve got instructions on how to get a CSV file from a number of crypto wallets on our integration pages.
Koinly’s crypto tax software is smart, but incorrectly imported data can cause issues.
Checking your transactions and correcting any inaccuracies lets Koinly calculate and generate the most accurate tax reports for you. There are a few simple steps you can follow to make sure your tax report is accurate:
Koinly can’t identify transfers from deposits or withdrawals if it doesn’t have your entire transaction history - so make sure you’ve connected every single wallet, exchange and blockchain you use with Koinly.
Sometimes a given API doesn’t include all your transaction data, or your CSV file might be missing certain kinds of transactions - so it’s important you check everything has been imported to Koinly correctly.
It's always good to double check your transactions and use the tags as they apply to your country’s crypto tax rules (find your crypto tax rules). Here’s the tags you can use and when to use them.
Deposit tags (receiving crypto)
Withdrawal tags (sending crypto)
