Top 5 Best Crypto Tax Software Companies


Calculating your crypto taxes is one of the more stressful parts of being a cryptocurrency trader. The time it takes to report on your crypto taxes depends on the number of coins you have, the number of trades you’ve done, and the number of exchanges you trade on. Not only that, but every exchange has a different output for tracking your trades, with some providing no output at all. Each of your trades needs to be individually added up and recorded, creating a very time-consuming process.

With all of this confusion, there is one thing we know for sure — it’s more important than ever to report your gains/losses to the IRS (or your country’s tax authority). One of the best ways to do this is through cryptocurrency tax software. Think TurboTax, but specifically for calculating your tax exposure from your cryptocurrency trading activity. These are the top 5 cryptocurrency tax software companies in the industry.

BearTax

https://bear.tax/

BearTax is one of the simplest ways to calculate your crypto taxes. The platform imports your transaction data using integrations with over 25 major exchanges to calculate your gains and provides export documents for you to file with your taxes.

The BearTax platform has a number of useful features. Firstly, the user interface is clean and easy to understand. Their ‘smart matching’ algorithm matches your withdrawals and deposits across their supported exchanges and is easily reviewable in the interface. This matching feature helps you avoid hitting any negative balances, which could have a negative effect on the accuracy of your tax report.

Additionally, their gain/loss screen for capital gains calculation makes it easy to review your tax liabilities for each crypto asset you own. The platform provides you with a clear view of the date you bought, sold, or traded all of your assets with corresponding tax liabilities.

They are also compatible with both centralized and decentralized exchanges, which lowers the difficulty level that comes along with decentralized trading. And if the exchange doesn’t have a way to connect, they accept data in a simple CSV format.

BearTax offers a number of pricing packages, ranging from $0.99 to $199.99 per year. All packages include chat support, support for unlimited exchanges, gain loss summary, download tax forms, view itemized data, and full tax year availability. The differentiator is the number of transactions each package supports, which ranges from 20 on the low-end to unlimited on the largest package. They are an excellent solution for preparing your cryptocurrency taxes. Use code BLOCKFI10 for 10% off your tax preparation.

“CryptoTrader.Tax offers a number of pricing packages. The first is free, which allows users to import all of their data and make sure everything looks accurate prior to paying.
