What is a Bitcoin Tax Calculator?

Last Update 2 jaar geleden

A bitcoin tax calculator is a utility tool that calculates the short-term capital gains tax, and the long-term capital gains tax on profit from bitcoins. The holding period impacts the taxes on bitcoins. If you hold the bitcoins for less than three years, the gains are called short-term capital gains. The gains would be clubbed with taxable income and you are taxed as per your income tax bracket.

If you hold the bitcoins for three years or more, the gains are long-term capital gains. You have to pay long-term capital gains tax at 20% with the benefit of indexation. The bitcoin tax calculator consists of a formula box, where you enter the nature of the transaction, purchase and sale price of the bitcoin, holding period, and the transaction fees. The calculator shows you the short-term capital gains tax or the long-term capital gains tax depending on the holding period.
