How do I file my Gemini taxes?
The first thing you need to do is calculate any income or capital gains you made from Gemini investment activity. Then, you can report it to your country’s tax office. For most people, this happens as part of your annual tax return.
You can either do it yourself, by manually identifying your taxable transactions, calculating your net capital gain or loss, and any crypto income you have made.
Or, you can use a crypto tax calculator like Koinly, which will calculate your taxable income for you, and generate any Gemini tax reporting you need, ready to file with your tax office.
Koinly works by importing your Gemini transaction data. Let's look at an example - here are some transactions in a Gemini account.
You can import your Gemini transaction history via API integration or by uploading CSV files of your Gemini transaction history. Once you've done this, you'll be able to see your Gemini transactions in Koinly - like this.
This lets you manage all your crypto transactions - from Gemini and any other exchanges you use - from one single platform, making crypto tax simple.
Your frequently asked questions
Does Gemini provide tax documents?
Gemini provides some tax documents for US users - including Form 1099-MISC. If you're outside the US, or need to report more than your income from Gemini, you'll need to get your complete transaction history from Gemini instead and either calculate your Gemini taxes yourself, or use a crypto tax calculator like Koinly to do it for you.
How do I get a Gemini tax statement?
The easiest way to get your Gemini tax documents is to connect to crypto tax software. You can either do this via API or by uploading a CSV file of your transaction history. Your crypto tax calculator will then calculate your Gemini taxes for you and generate your Gemini tax documents.
Do you get a Gemini tax 1099?
Gemini provides some tax documents for US users - including Form 1099-MISC. A 1099-MISC form is issued to US users who have earned more than $600 in income throughout the calendar year and are issued by the end of January the following year. Previously, Gemini issued Form 1099-K, but have since stopped issuing these to users.
Does Gemini provide financial or end of year statements?

What does Gemini report to the IRS?
Gemini issues Forms 1099-MISC (for reporting other income) for non-exempt U.S. exchange account holders who have earned more than $600 (USD equivalent) in income during the calendar year. Additionally, starting on 1/1/2023 Gemini will also issue form 1099-B (or similar forms designed specifically for digital assets).
How do Gemini earn taxes work?
Generally, Gemini Earn rewards will be viewed as additional income by most tax offices and subject to Income Tax upon receipt based on the fair market value of your rewards on the day you receive them (in your fiat currency).
When will I get a 1099 form?
If you’re going to receive a 1099 form from Gemini, you should receive this by February of the following financial year at the latest.
Is Gemini safe?
Yes. Gemini is a secure crypto exchange that follows best security practices and most fiat assets stored in Gemini are FDIC insured. However, you should always store assets in a cold wallet that you’re not actively trading.
Does Gemini have proof of reserves?
Gemini has some exposure to FTX due to its relationship with Genesis Lending and has paused Gemini Earn withdrawals as a result. The exchange says operations will resume as usual soon and has committed to publishing a Merkle Tree proof of reserves audit in the future.
