How are eToro transactions taxed?

The tax you'll pay on your eToro transactions all depends on where you live and the specific transactions you've made - so make sure to check out our crypto tax guides for the rules where you live. This said you'll generally pay one of two taxes:

  • Capital Gains Tax: Whenever you sell or trade crypto on eToro and make a gain, you'll generally pay Capital Gains Tax on that gain.

  • Income Tax: Whenever you earn new crypto on eToro - for example, Cardano or ETH staking rewards - you may need to pay Income Tax upon receipt based on the fair market value of your tokens.

Does eToro report to the IRS?

Yes. eToro reports to the IRS as they issue 1099 forms to users. Any time you receive a 1099 form, the IRS receives an identical copy.

How do I file my eToro taxes?

To start, you'll need to calculate any capital gains, losses or income from your eToro transactions. This means you need to identify each taxable transaction on eToro, identify your cost basis, calculate any subsequent capital gains or losses and calculate the fair market value of any income in your fiat currency on the day you received it.

You can do this yourself, but it's a lot of work. Especially as you need to do this for each crypto exchange and wallet you use. This is why most investors opt to use a crypto tax calculator like Koinly. With Koinly, all you need to do is import a CSV file of your eToro transactions and Koinly will calculate your eToro gains, income and more for you. Better still, Koinly can generate a range of crypto tax reports for investors around the world including IRS tax reports, ATO tax reports, HMRC tax reports and more.
