Crypto-assets and taxes
The taxation of cryptocurrency assets is handled differently in many places throughout the world. At the moment, cryptocurrency is still a very new technology, and each government is still working out how to navigate and classify crypto-assets.
We at Exodus would not presume to be authorities on multi-national tax laws. When preparing to file taxes, we highly recommend you contact a licensed and practiced accountant or service provider who is knowledgeable about how your country's tax authority classifies cryptocurrencies.
If you need to include your crypto transactions and holdings when filing your taxes, then you can export your entire wallet history to a CSV. You can submit the relevant information from that CSV to your tax accountant, or utilize one of the below resources to help organize your transactions in preparation for tax season.
Below are some services that offer help with crypto taxation. We encourage you to research available options before picking any of the below, as you will need to pick a service that is aware of the tax rules in your local region.

Hopefully, in the future, more of the world can come to a consensus on how cryptocurrencies should be regulated (if they can be regulated at all) and how crypto-taxation can be enforced. Until then, we are in a very unknown territory, and it is best to keep yourself as safe as possible.
If your cryptocurrency transactions/exchanges/purchases may be taxable in your country of residence, we advise you to speak with a certified professional who is knowledgeable of the tax environment in your area.
