You've Got Questions
Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
Do I really have to pay taxes?
Yes, you are required to pay US taxes, capital gains, on all income whether domestic or international. The IRS is currently contracting with several chain analysis companies to scour the blockchain to find cryptocurrency "hodlers" who are avoiding taxes. The IRS also successfully sued Coinbase so now a Federal Court has ordered Coinbase to turn over identifying records for all users who have bought, sold, sent, or received more than $20,000 through their accounts in a single year between 2013 and 2015. More action by the IRS is possibly coming soon as they do their research and analysis and target specific wallets and exchanges. Adding to the confusion, there are state attorney generals also considering lawsuits against the tax bill. It is a very fluid situation that requires monitoring and action.
Am I going to get audited?
There is always a possibility to receive an unpleasant audit notice. The IRS is actively targeting individuals who are using cryptocurrency for tax evasion or who are not paying their cryptocurrency capital gains. It is better to be prepared.
What is a taxable event?
A taxable event is typically a sale or disposition of an asset. In crypto, a taxable event occurs whenever a coin is traded for cash (also known as fiat) or another cryptocurrency or whenever cryptocurrency is used to purchase goods or services. Transferring BTC from Coinbase to Bittrex is not a taxable event. Transferring BTC to ETH to an ICO is considered a taxable event. It's also now explicitly forbidden to try to 1031 exchange your ICO holdings. Consult your tax professional as you make these decisions to decide how aggressive or conservative you wish to be and how to appropriately provide the right documentation and pay taxes on events of this nature to create a record.
Does ZenLedger do my taxes for me?
ZenLedger does not do your taxes. You and your tax professional file your own taxes with the State and Federal Government wherever you reside. ZenLedger quickly aggregates your many ledgers, marks the transactions to market, and allows you to categorize each transaction by use.
You will need to provide us with a CSV of all your transactions from an exchange or a public address that we can then scrape into the tool and present to your CPA in a readable, standardized format.
What exchanges and coins and currencies are you currently integrated with? Will you add more?
We are racing to integrate reports from Coinbase, GDAX, Bittrex, Binance, Kucoin, Gemini, Poloniex, and a host of other exchanges. We will support almost every coin: Bitcoin BTC, Ether ETH, Ripple XRP, Bitcoin Cash BCH, Litecoin LTC and hundreds of others. We are also working to give you reports in different global currencies. ZenLedger isn't just for Americans. Zendledger can be used by anyone in the world that is using multiple ledgers and would like those transactions easily aggregated and cleaned up into a readable format. Whether it is US Dollars, Euro, Japanese Yen, British Pound, we are working to support all global currencies.
Disclaimer: We are not licensed tax professionals. We are not giving tax advice. Please consult your tax attorney and/or CPA for professional advice on these matters.
I have Monero or Dash or ZCash and I want to ensure I’m in compliance. How do I do that?
Our recommendation for achieving full compliance is always to disclose if in doubt. Token trades and token purchases made through exchanges are visible to the IRS and to other enforcement agencies, so differences between your affirmative reporting and records visible to enforcement agencies are likely if these assets are omitted from reporting.
