If you receive tokens as a gift, it is tax-free to sell these tokens later.

The reason for this is that there is no “intention to speculate” when receiving a gift. It is precisely the intent to speculate that determines whether tax liability arises for trading in assets under the State Tax Act. You can read more about this here [link to tax rules/staking rewards].

Do you have a deposit in your transaction list that is rightfully a gift?

If you mark it as a gift, the correct tax calculation will be applied to it (as described above).

You mark a deposit as a gift by:

1. Clicking on the “label” icon to the right in the transaction line.

2. A list of transaction types will now open, and here you choose “gift”.

3. The change of the transaction to a gift will now be registered as a change to your report.

4. When you have finished making changes to your transactions, you click “update report”.

5. After your report has been recalculated, you can see the result of having marked the transaction as a gift in the total calculation at the top left.
