Top 8 Crypto Tax Platforms

Making money, spending money, holding money, or just generally being around money, comes with a significant side effect, namely – taxes. The term itself evokes a desire to procrastinate, imagining hours and days of manual calculations and headache. Especially for newbies, it may seem like a gigantic bite to take. Like that's not enough, even professionals have trouble doing taxes for themselves and their clients when it comes to crypto, particularly due to lack of regulations.

So should you do your taxes? Well, yes. First of all, it’s the law to pay them and not following that law may get you in trouble. But secondly, you also want to know exactly, to the last sat, where you stand with your finances at any point in time – your gains, and your losses. You want to know how much you spend, where, how much you get, from whom, and how much money in fiat should you have ready for the tax time. And it’s far better to do this on a constant basis, than two days before you need it.

Luckily, the times are changing, and this change is the best seen by those connected to digital assets.
