How are KuCoin transactions taxed?

The crypto tax laws may vary depending on the country you reside in and other factors such as your filing status, income bracket, and marital status. But, in general, there are mainly two types of taxes applicable to KuCoin transactions.

  • Income Tax- If you are earning rewards (e.g. through lending or staking) or maybe receiving, you may need to pay income tax.
  • Capital Gains Tax- If you profit from the disposal of your crypto assets (e.g. by selling your tokens, Bitcoin,  Ethereum, etc.), you incur capital gains tax. 

Important things to keep in mind while integrating KuCoin

  1. When importing a CSV file, match your KuCoin account Time Zone in the Kryptos import form.
  2. While creating a new key, make the API key read-only.
  3. Keep your API Key and API Secret somewhere safe, preferably offline.
