Tax on Cryptocurrency in India

Income from the transfer of digital assets such as cryptocurrencies like Ethereum, Dogecoin, Bitcoin, etc., is taxed at a flat rate of 30% without allowing deduction of expenses except for the cost of acquisition. Regardless of whether the gain is a short-term or long-term capital gain, the tax must be paid by the individual who has earned any profit from cryptocurrency transactions. In addition to the tax, the individual will also have to pay a cess of 4% on the tax.

How to Calculate Tax on Cryptocurrency?

To calculate tax on cryptocurrency, you have to deduct the purchase price from the selling price of the cryptocurrencies you hold and calculate 30% of the value. In addition to 30% of the tax, you must pay a cess of 4% of the tax amount. Please refer to the example below:

Example: Taxation on Cryptocurrency

These examples calculate taxes for the FY 2022-23 for a person.

Example 1: Taxation on cryptocurrency
Purchase Price of Cryptocurrency: 50,000 INR
The selling price of the Cryptocurrency: 70,000 INR
Profit: 20,000 INR
Tax: 6000 INR
Cess: 4% at 6000 = 240 INR
Total tax liability: 6240/- INR

Example 2: Tax on bitcoin in India

Mr. A purchased bitcoins worth 3Lakh (3,00,000) on May 1, 2022, and sold the bitcoins at 4Lakh (4,00,000) on May 25, 2022. How much is the tax liability on Mr A?

The tax liability on Mr. A will be based on the profit earned. Here, Mr A earned 1,00,000 in profits. The flat tax of 30% will be applicable to this sum. This means that the person will have to pay 30,000/- on this tax
Further, on 30,000/- Mr. A will have to pay a cess at 4% so total tax liability will be Rs.31,200/-
