TaxBit Co-Founders Justin & Austin Woodward Bring Celsius Network, Gemini, Coinbase into Supported Network to Offer Free 2021 Crypto Tax Forms for Clients

2 min read



If you’re anything like the fellow hundreds of crypto coin enthusiasts who’ve been lucky (or unlucky) enough to bag some crypto profits over the past few initial years of the burgeoning crypto space, then you know the exact frustrations and questions regarding the tedious tax implications involved.


The TaxBit Network includes participants from crypto companies BlockFi, OKCoin, Paxos, Coinbase, Strike, Coinlist,,, Gemini, Uphold, FTX.US, Binance.US and Celsius Network as well as more traditional fintech firms such as SoFi, PayPal, and decentralized finance (DeFi) startups like SuperRare and Uniswap, among others.

Woodward told CoinDesk that TaxBit Network’s tax forms will be free to all users, regardless of transaction volume.

“So, no longer if you have a bot trading in the background, do you need to worry about racking up a big tax bill when it comes to preparing your taxes,” Woodward said. “We’ve removed the concept of transaction limits, which no one in the industry has ever done.”

Woodward also hopes that by making crypto taxes easier, it will help to close the much-discussed “tax gap” that the Internal Revenue Service has partially attributed to undisclosed cryptocurrency capital gains.

“Our belief is that it’s not because the crypto community is purposely trying to evade taxes,” Woodward said of the tax gap. “It’s been way too costly and too complicated to figure out.”

Woodward told CoinDesk the response from the crypto industry has been positive, and he expects more companies to join the TaxBit Network before the end of tax season in April.

“The crypto companies want to be in good graces with regulators. They want to help their users report their taxes,” Woodward said. “This isn’t something that has been due to a lack of desire, right? It’s a technological hurdle, and it’s a cost hurdle.”

Participating crypto CEOs seem to agree with Woodward’s assessment.

“Compliance is a key pillar at Gemini and proactively providing our investors with access to tax reporting tools helps our clients stay on top of their cryptocurrency tax obligations while regulation continues to evolve,” Gemini CEO Tyler Winklevoss wrote in a press release.

Users will be able to access the tax forms starting Tuesday, either through the TaxBit Network’s website or, in most cases, via the participating institution’s app.
