How are CoinEx transactions taxed?

Crypto tax varies depending on where you live and your tax office. However, in general, crypto is subject to two taxes in most countries - Income Tax and Capital Gains Tax.

  • Capital Gains Tax: Whenever you sell or swap crypto on CoinEx, you'll likely pay Capital Gains Tax on any profits.

  • Income Tax: Whenever you earn new tokens on CoinEx - like interest through a CoinEx Financial Account or earning coins through CoinEx Learn to Earn - you'll pay Income Tax upon receipt of those tokens, based on the fair market value (in your fiat currency) on the day you received them.

Does CoinEx provide tax documents?

No. CoinEx does not provide tax documents for users. Instead, users need to get their CoinEx transaction history and either calculate their taxes themselves or use a crypto tax calculator to help them.

Does CoinEx report to the IRS?

CoinEx is one of the few large crypto exchanges left with minimal KYC verification in place - you'll only need to complete KYC verification for withdrawals over $10,000. With this in mind, it's unlikely CoinEx is reporting to the IRS, however, as a large, centralized exchange, it's likely CoinEx is facing pressure from tax offices around the world to improve KYC verification processes and ensure tax compliance.
