The 2021 federal income tax 1040 form has a
question about cryptocurrency transactions at
the very beginning right after where you enter
your name, address, and social security
number. It has to do with “selling, disposing of,
or exchanging” any cryptocurrency.
The point is that if you sold, disposed of, or
exchanged a cryptocurrency in 2021 for more
than you bought it for, you will owe capital
gains tax. How crypto taxes work is similar to
how taxes work on stocks or any other asset
that you purchase and then sell for a profit.
Do You Need to Pay a Tax for Owning a
Cryptocurrency?
Paying taxes on money that you made from
buying and selling is how crypto taxes work.
So, if you purchased Bitcoins years ago for $100
each and still hold them, you do not owe a cent
in taxes. You can also answer NO to the
question on the 1040 form. That is because you
did not dispose of, exchange, or sell a
cryptocurrency during the tax year. This
applies if you purchased crypto years ago or
bought a cryptocurrency during 2021 so long as
you did not sell any during 2021.
How Crypto Taxes Work
How Much Are Cryptocurrency Taxes?
It is important to remember that there is not any
unique tax on cryptocurrencies. Rather, crypto-
based profits are treated as capital gains. And,
there are two types of capital gains taxes, short
term and long term. If you purchased a
cryptocurrency and then sold it for more than
the purchase price within one year you had a
short term capital gain. If you owned a
cryptocurrency for more than one year and
then sold it for more than the purchase price
you had a long term capital gain.
Short Term vs Long Term Capital Gain Tax
Rates and Bitcoin Price Fluctuation
Short term capital gains are taxed at the same rate
as ordinary income which can be up to 37% for
the 2021 tax year. The long term capital gain
tax rate ranges from 0% to 15% to 20%
depending on your total income. Bitcoin
started 2021 at $32,149.90 and ended the year at
$47,733.40. Along the way it fell to $32,114.20
on January 22, peaked at $61,283.80 on March
12, bottomed out at $31,576.20 on July 16, and
peaked at $64,400 on November 12 before
falling back to $47,733.40 at year’s end.
If you purchased bitcoin on January 22 for
$32,114.20 and sold for $64,400 on November
12 you made out like a bandit with a $32,385.80
profit per bitcoin. Sadly, you owe taxes on your
short term capital gain of $32,385 which could
be as high as 37% or $11,945.75 on each bitcoin
that you bought and then sold for a profit.
How Cryptocurrency Taxes Work When You
Purchased and Sold Many Times
Your short term capital gain tax could be a big
disappointment if you bought and sold bitcoin
like in the example we just used. But, figuring
your taxes would be easy. What happens when
you use a cryptocurrency to buy and sell things
throughout the entire year making hundreds of
transactions? What you will want is a 1099-
MISC or 1099-NEC form from your crypto
exchange for your crypto transactions.
What commonly happens is that some of your
transactions during the year are capital gains
and others are capital losses. You are generally
allowed to deduct capital losses from capital
gains in determining the amount of short term
or long term capital gain on which you will
owe taxes. This is where you will commonly
want a tax preparation professional to help.
Folks like CoinTracker, ZenLeger, and
Quickbooks have software that helps you track
your crypto taxes to make the job easier.

How Crypto Taxes Work

  • 2. The 2021 federal income tax 1040 form has a question about cryptocurrency transactions at the very beginning right after where you enter your name, address, and social security number. It has to do with “selling, disposing of, or exchanging” any cryptocurrency.
  • 3. The point is that if you sold, disposed of, or exchanged a cryptocurrency in 2021 for more than you bought it for, you will owe capital gains tax. How crypto taxes work is similar to how taxes work on stocks or any other asset that you purchase and then sell for a profit.
  • 4. Do You Need to Pay a Tax for Owning a Cryptocurrency?
  • 5. Paying taxes on money that you made from buying and selling is how crypto taxes work. So, if you purchased Bitcoins years ago for $100 each and still hold them, you do not owe a cent in taxes. You can also answer NO to the question on the 1040 form. That is because you did not dispose of, exchange, or sell a cryptocurrency during the tax year. This applies if you purchased crypto years ago or bought a cryptocurrency during 2021 so long as you did not sell any during 2021.
  • 7. How Much Are Cryptocurrency Taxes?
  • 8. It is important to remember that there is not any unique tax on cryptocurrencies. Rather, crypto- based profits are treated as capital gains. And, there are two types of capital gains taxes, short term and long term. If you purchased a cryptocurrency and then sold it for more than the purchase price within one year you had a short term capital gain. If you owned a cryptocurrency for more than one year and then sold it for more than the purchase price you had a long term capital gain.
  • 9. Short Term vs Long Term Capital Gain Tax Rates and Bitcoin Price Fluctuation
  • 10. Short term capital gains are taxed at the same rate as ordinary income which can be up to 37% for the 2021 tax year. The long term capital gain tax rate ranges from 0% to 15% to 20% depending on your total income. Bitcoin started 2021 at $32,149.90 and ended the year at $47,733.40.
