How is Ethereum taxed?

Most countries recognise Ethereum, as well as most crypto currencies, as property rather than currency. As a result, Ethereum is taxed as an asset.

Do you pay taxes when you buy Ethereum?

You do not pay taxes when you buy Ethereum. If you are swapping another cryptocurrency for Ethereum, you will pay tax on the coin swap because a coin swap is seen by most tax authorities as the disposal of one asset and the purchase of a new asset. This means that you will have to pay tax on the asset that you disposed off.

Do you pay taxes when you pay with Ethereum?

Yes! Since Ethereum is seen as property rather than currency, if you make a purchase using Ethereum you are seen by most tax authorities to be disposing of property and making a purchase with the proceeds. Any gains you have made when you purchase with Ethereum are taxable by most countries in the world.

How can I avoid taxes on Ethereum?

It is very difficult to evade taxes on cryptocurrencies. Many exchanges share data with the tax authority of the country they are headquartered with. This is either voluntary or mandatory. Coinbase has famously given all of its user information to the IRS, along with the transactions made by users. Many other exchanges have also been forced to do the same.

There are a few countries who have little to no tax on crypto.

Alternatively, implementing a strong tax strategy can minimise the tax you have to pay.

How can I use tax loss harvesting to reduce the tax I have to pay on Ethereum?

Tax loss harvesting refers to realising a loss, then buying back in and carrying over that loss to future tax years. If you hold your investment for longer than 12 months, you can be eligible for a Capital Gains Tax discount, which when combined to your losses can heavily reduce the amount of tax you have to pay. This means you can keep more of what you make.

About Ethereum

Ethereum is a smart contract platform that enables developers to build tokens and decentralized applications (dapps). ETH is the native currency for the Ethereum platform and also works as the transaction fees to miners on the Ethereum network. Ethereum is the pioneer for blockchain based smart contracts. Smart contract is essentially a computer code that runs exactly as programmed without any possibility of downtime, censorship, fraud or third-party interference. It can facilitate the exchange of money, content, property, shares, or anything of value. When running on the blockchain a smart contract becomes like a self-operating computer program that automatically executes when specific conditions are met. Ethereum allows programmers to run complete-turing smart contracts that is capable of any customizations. Rather than giving a set of limited operations, Ethereum allows developers to have complete control over customization of their smart contract, giving developers the power to build unique and innovative applications. Ethereum being the first blockchain based smart contract platform, they have gained much popularity, resulting in new competitors fighting for market share. The competitors includes: Ethereum Classic which is the oldchain of Ethereum, Qtum, EOS, Neo, Icon, Tron and Cardano. Ethereum wallets are fairly simple to set up with multiple popular choices such as myetherwallet, metamask, and Trezor.
