How to Import Staking with Our Template Format

How to easily import staking transactions automatically into TokenTax for tax calculation.

Staking is taxable income in the eyes of the IRS. Therefore, it must be reported and included in your crypto reconciliation. The quickest way to get staking transactions into TokenTax from CSVs is to copy and paste them into our template.

To place staking transactions into our template for upload, do the following:

  • Download the manual spreadsheet template.

  • Open the template. Each row represents a transaction. Here's how to fill out those rows. It's okay to leave unneeded columns blank.

    • Type: Use staking for staking transactions, Deposit or Withdrawal for non-staking wallet movements (deposits / withdrawals are not usually required).

    • BuyAmount: The amount of tokens received in the staking reward.

    • BuyCurrency: The currency of token received.

    • Exchange: The source of the transaction (could be any name such as XTZ staking, XTZ wallet, etc)

    • Date: When you received the staking reward (formatted MM/DD/YY HH:MM:SS)

  • Upload the template CSV via CSV upload in the Import Data screen.
