How to Access My Tax Reports
To access your tax reports, simply login into your BTC Markets account and select the 'Account' tab from the menu at the top of the page, then select the sub tab 'Tax Report'.
From here, you can choose the financial year, disposal method and your tax residency status, and then generate the relevant tax reports.
What Reports Are Available?
Estimated Taxable Events - A summary of the estimated taxable gain or loss (from transactions made on your BTC Markets account), and any estimated taxable income (from rewards and airdrops). Each of these summaries will only show if taxable events have occurred during the specified financial year.
All figures are reported in Australian Dollars (AUD).
Wallet Balance - A snapshot of your account holdings at the end of the specified financial year.
Detailed Tax Report - A downloadable CSV extract containing a detailed line item for each taxable transaction / event, including the relevant information, calculations and running totals for the specified financial year.

Please be advised that fees may be charged by the blockchain network on deposits to an exchange which you are responsible for determining and keeping a record of. BTC Markets charges fees on the withdrawal of assets from the exchange to an external wallet which are displayed in the Detailed Tax Report.
Please Note: If you haven't had any taxable events during the financial year, not all/any of these reports will be available.
