TAX EXPERT EXPLAINS Crypto Mining Tax in Canada



You may have tried to find out how your crypto mined needs to be taxed, but to no avail, there is limited information online. That is because the tax law around crypto is still being developed and mainly CRA guidance is available which seems too vague and doesn’t seem to provide enough details that encompass the complexities of the crypto world.

However, with tax season rolling around, we need to report our taxes and the best we can do is to report a resonable position based on current tax legislatution and guidance. I’ve compiled the various CRA guidances and interpretations, as well as end with what I believe to be a reasonable reporting positon so make sure to watch until the very end!
