How to Calculate Taxes on Steemit Income

in #steemit4 years ago

I'm still in the process of getting my cryptocurrency tax affairs in order. It's involved searching far and wide across the internet for useful tools and resources to help make the process a little less painful.

I was quite nervous about how I was gonna deal with Steemit. That was until I discovered a great website called There are two pages that make it very useful: (for full transaction history & capital gains) (for income tax)

In this video, I provide an introduction to both of these resources and how they might help you calculate your own tax liabilities.

Much appreciated for this. I was late to get on the Steem train but now that I am, and it is tax time, I was thinking about having to report Steemit earnings next year.

I will bookmark this, thanks!

Wow, very helpful, will definetely use these! But how do you calculate the currency conversion? Do you do it monthly or for every transaction?

Thanks for sharing this post, at least i know where to go if i need to check my steem income

I’ve been wondering about Steemit income and the tax implications for a while. Thanks for the resources.

Quite interesting and useful post. The steemit platform is revolutionary but also complex. Good thing you discovered


I really believe you video should be called How to Calculate Your Income for Tax Reporting Purposes, with the way it is titled now, you make it seem like you have a video that shows you how to calculate your tax liability

Everyone should consult a tax advisor prior to establishing their tax position.

Also, for Canadians this web site is being developed.

I hope that they finish it soon.

Thanks for sharing this resource. Steemit has a lot going on so definitely one of the more complicated platforms so this should help with the process.

Upvoted and resteemed :)

Thanks for the resources. I will definitely keep this in mind tax season comes along.

Though still in development this tool is quite useful, but need improvement on it's appearance. Thanks for sharing @louisthomas
