Is Celo taxed in Germany
The German Federal Central Tax Office has recognized cryptocurrencies as private money, which means it is a legal asset that is not property or foreign currency. According to taxfix, cryptocurrency is considered tax-free, but there are some conditions. The first condition is the duration of ownership. If a crypto owner holds the tokens for one year and then sells them, this trade is tax-free if the sale profit is 600 EUR. Therefore, if they sell the tokens and gain even one euro higher than 600 EUR, they should pay tax for the entire profit. The sale profit of tokens holding more than one year is tax-free. Meanwhile, if they sell the coins for less than a year (11 months) and gain profit from selling them, they should pay its tax, which is the same as the regular income tax rate of 45% plus the 5.5% Solidarity Tax.
