⚖Tax Avoidance vs. Tax Evasion⚖
Tax avoidance is legal, whereas tax evasion is illegal. There are dozens of ways you can legally avoid taxes, but they usually aren’t worth it unless you’re making *a lot* of money. For example, setting up a shell company in the Caribbean or temporarily relocating to another country won’t make much sense if you only stand to save a few grand in crypo tax.
➖Minimize Taxable Events➖
Ideally the only taxable events should be when you cash out that crypto back into fiat. This is much easier said than done and you’ve probably already racked up a fair bit of crypto-crypto transactions, might have earned some staking rewards, have probably been airdropped a few random tokens. Instead of making sense of the madness on your own, you can use a crypto tax software to help you.
📅Split Gains Between Tax Years📅
See if it would be worth your while to actualize some of your gains in the next calendar year. Whether or not you can do this will really depend on how this bull market plays out and what coins or tokens you’re holding.
💱Write Off Crypto Gains As Expenses💱
If you’re going to be cashing out of crypto, you are probably going to be spending some or all of that money on something, be it a car or a home or items related to one of your hobbies. Freelancers and companies can write off many of the things they purchase as business expenses. See if this route is available to you.
One of the most universal tax loopholes involves gift giving. In some countries, giving cryptocurrency as a gift is not a taxable event, and sometimes the person receiving that crypto is able to sell it and pay no capital gains if the value of the crypto in fiat is the same or less than when they got it.
🐫Crypto Tax Havens: UAE🐫
The UAE has no capital gains tax and no income tax. It is also very friendly to foreigners and is by all accounts a fully developed country with world class services amenities. There is also no shortage of affordable Lamborghinis.
🏰Crypto Tax Havens: Europe🏰
Switzerland, Portugal, Germany, Belarus, and Malta are all very friendly as far as crypto taxes go.
🌏Crypto Tax Havens: Asia🌏
Singapore and Malaysia, though both can be prohibitively expensive as far as living goes. Hong Kong is also an option but not a good one given everything that’s going on there at the moment.
🤨Crypto Tax Havens: USA!?🤨
If you are American, your best option as far as crypto tax havens go is Puerto Rico. As a US citizen, any cryptocurrency gains you make after you become a resident of Puerto Rico are tax exempt. This even applies to cryptocurrencies you were holding prior to moving there or establishing your permanent residence. This is thanks to something called ‘Act 60’ which is meant to incentivize big brains and big money to relocate to Puerto Rico.
