I’m Matt Walrath, founder of Crypto Tax Made Easy, and I’ve helped hundreds of crypto investors collectively save tens of millions of dollars on their crypto taxes with our done-for-you tax service and DIY crypto tax course.
Back in 2020 I discovered Decentralized finance, NFTs and ICOs. So my crypto tax situation went from a few buys of bitcoin on coinbase to over 1000 transactions.
I was stressed and overwhelmed when tax time rolled around because my accountant had NO CLUE how to help me report the crypto transactions. He even said “how much did you put in, how much is it worth now? We’ll just report that."
I would have overpaid by tens of thousands if I took that advice.
So I started looking into crypto tax software. But none of them gave me an accurate crypto tax report.
My anxiety hit a peak, and I had to file an extension to give me time to discover how to properly report my crypto taxes.
And after months of trial and error, I finally discovered a streamlined process to get an accurate crypto tax report while also reducing the amount I owed in crypto taxes. My stress melted away, and was replaced by peace of mind.
I documented this process with over-the-shoulder videos, checklists and cheat sheets so that I didn't have to go through the learning curve every year at tax time.
I shared the guides with some friends in crypto & web3 communities I am a part of and the feedback of gratitude was overwhelming. The DIY crypto tax course was born.
But some people still didn't want to put the time in to learn how to do it themselves. So, they asked me to clean up their Koinly reports for them.
Initially I was hesitant, it's tedious and boring work.
But I took on a few clients and the demand was overwhelming. So, I've had to hire and train other accountants in my method to help people like you save time & money on their crypto taxes.
