How are Coinbase Pro transactions taxed?

The tax you pay on crypto depends on your transactions and where you live. You can learn more about crypto tax in your country in our crypto tax guides, but in general, you’ll pay either Capital Gains Tax or Income Tax on your crypto (or both!).

  • Capital Gains Tax: If sold or swapped crypto on Coinbase Pro and made a gain, you’ll likely pay Capital Gains Tax on that gain.

  • Income Tax: If you earned new tokens on Coinbase Pro, this is generally viewed as additional income and subject to Income Tax upon receipt.

Does Coinbase Pro report to the IRS?

Yes. Coinbase Pro reported to the IRS. Coinbase Pro issued users with more than $600 in income a 1099-MISC to you. Remember - when you get a 1099 form, so does the IRS.

Coinbase also lost a John Doe summons case to the IRS in 2016. This meant the exchange was legally compelled to share KYC data for some customers with the IRS. Though Coinbase Pro was formerly GDAX - the exchange is an owned property of Coinbase and is subject to the same reporting requirements.

How do I file my Coinbase Pro taxes?

You’ll need to report any capital gains, losses, or income from your Coinbase Pro investments to your tax office, generally as part of your annual tax return.

You can do this yourself - but it’s time-consuming. You need to identify each taxable transaction on Coinbase Pro, figure out the kind of tax that applies, and calculate any gain, loss, or income.

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.
