Does WazirX report to the Income Tax Department in India?

WazirX is a highly compliant crypto exchange based in India, which means the exchange must follow the government's guidance on collecting and depositing TDS with the ITD. The ITD largely introduced the 1% TDS to keep track of crypto investments for Indian taxpayers. So in a word, yes, it's likely the Income Tax Department knows about your WazirX transactions. As well as this, the ITD may also be able to request customer data from Indian crypto exchanges to ensure tax compliance. You should always report your crypto investments accurately in your Income Tax Return - failure to do so comes with severe penalties.

How are WazirX transactions taxed?

There are three potential tax rates that may apply may apply to your WazirX transactions:

  • 1% TDS (Tax Deducted at Source): For crypto purchases with ITD or crypto to crypto trades that exceed more than RS50,000 in a year.
  • 30% tax: Any profits from selling, swapping, or spending crypto are subject to a flat 30% tax.
  • Income Tax at your individual slab rate: Earning crypto - for example, staking rewards - may be subject to Income Tax at your individual slab rate.

How to get a WazirX tax statement

The guidance from the government is clear that Indian crypto investors must report crypto in their Income Tax Return. Gains from crypto should be reported in the Schedule VDA, while income from crypto should be reported in Schedule Income From Other Sources. You can do all of this online, but you'll first need to calculate your gains and income from crypto.

You can do this yourself - but it's a lot of work. You'll need to have details about every time you swapped, sold, or spent crypto including your cost basis, transaction dates, proceeds, and more. As well as this, if you have any income to report, you'll also need to calculate the fair market value of that income in INR on the day you received it.

This is why most investors opt to use a crypto tax calculator like Koinly. Koinly calculates all this for you and generates crypto tax reports that include all the information you need to easily file with the ITD. All you need to do is connect WazirX to Koinly using API or by uploading a CSV file of your transaction history.
