(We teach other Professionals how to handle crypto taxation)

When the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) issues a warning, it’s important to sit up and take notice! This year, the CRA put out a press release specifically regarding Bitcoin tax and other cryptocurrency taxes for international and national tax accountants. The federal government treats virtual currency as property, which means that taxpayers who do not correctly report their virtual currency transactions can be audited for those transactions and, when appropriate, be held liable for penalties and interest. The CRA noted that “taxpayers could be subject to 100% penalty and/or criminal prosecution for failing to properly report the income tax consequences of virtual currency transactions”. In short, this means it’s time to get serious about Cryptocurrency taxes!


For years, owners of cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin have avoided taxation. Cryptocurrencies are not taxed immediately at the time of acquisition or transaction, so the CRA, therefore, expects that individuals will report and pay taxes at a later date. After the meteoric rise in Bitcoin value in 2017, the CRA took a particular interest in the tax revenue that could be earned from enforcing cryptocurrency tax laws.

So what are the crypto tax regulations on capital gains and losses? The biggest issue is the breadth of the information you must have in order to properly report each transaction. If your recordkeeping for each trade has been less than thorough, it can feel nearly impossible to file an accurate return. In addition to the date you bought the cryptocurrency, you will need to know the amount you paid in Canadian Dollars. Even if you were exchanging one cryptocurrency for another, the cost of the purchase must be reported in the dollar value at the time of the transaction. Given the constant market fluctuations, this value is rarely static. Furthermore, you will need to report the date that you sold the coins and how much you received for them. Unfortunately, many cryptocurrency holders cannot retrieve this information from their exchanges and will need to research each transaction individually.


The regulation of Bitcoin taxes and other cryptocurrency taxes has raised questions for many taxpayers. In previous years, very few people have reported their cryptocurrency holdings, gains, and losses. In fact, in 2015, only 802 people reported cryptocurrency on their returns in Canada! To put this number in perspective, the popular cryptocurrency exchange, Coinbase, now has over 13 million unique users. Although digital currency is popular across the world, there is still a shockingly low rate of reporting for United States taxpayers.
