Can I receive a tax receipt?
Yes! Cryptocurrency donations are treated similarly to stock donations. When you make a donation in crypto, you will receive a tax receipt from Help Lesotho for the fair market value of the crypto at the time of the donation.
What are the tax benefits?
Donating crypto means giving more to the charity you care about and deducting more from your taxes. By transferring your cryptocurrency directly to Help Lesotho, you do not pay capital gains tax and will receive a tax receipt for the full amount. If you had sold your cryptocurrency and then used the cash to make a donation, you would owe capital gains tax, resulting in a lower donation to your charity and a lower tax deduction for you.
