How does crypto taxation work?

Cryptocurrency taxation is a complex topic that varies by country. In Canada, the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) considers cryptocurrency as a digital asset and taxes it as such. If you sell or use your crypto in a transaction and it is worth more than it was when you purchased it, you will be taxed on the capital gains. The amount of tax you’ll pay on crypto depends on the kind of transaction (income or capital gain), and how much you earn. For transactions viewed as income, you’ll pay Income Tax at your usual Federal and Provincial tax rate. For transactions viewed as capital gains, you’ll pay Income Tax at your normal Federal and Provincial tax rate on half of any gain.

If you need more information on how to calculate and report your crypto taxes in Canada, including income and capital gains, with the latest guidance from the CRA and the CRA’s crypto policies, you can check out this guide by Forte Innovations. It covers everything you need to know including crypto capital gains, crypto income, how to calculate your crypto taxes, how to report your crypto to the CRA, and even how to help you reduce your tax bill ahead of the April 30 tax deadline 1.

What’s the difference between Business vs. Capital Gains Crypto Tax Returns

Sure! When calculating your crypto taxes, it’s important to start by inspecting the proceeds resulting from disposition. In Canada, we use the Adjusted Cost Base (ACB) to calculate the cost of your cryptocurrency. Don’t forget to include Crypto Exchange Fees (i.e. gas fees) to ensure that your report is complete and accurate before settling your crypto gains and losses report.

If you are picked for a review or for a full audit, the crypto gains and loss report will be the basis by which to support your reply to the CRA. It is also used to prepare your tax return for e-File with major tax software packages like TurboTax or UFile, which are the most popular tax preparation packages for those filing by themselves.

To distinguish between business income and capital gains, evaluate by using the following criteria:

Business Income

  • Cryptocurrency trading (i.e. how frequent is your trading?)

  • Holding inventory for a short period of time (i.e. minutes, hours, days)

  • Intention related to your crypto mining (i.e. is it to make a profit or a hobby?)

  • It is your main source of income (i.e. is it a hobby or your main source of income?)

Capital Gain

  • Holding for investment purposes
