    • Are my taxes owed on cryptocurrency gains too low? Only 4% o

      I have filed my taxes and the profit I made from daytrading cryptocurrency is only 4% according to TurboTax. I was expecting my profits to be taxed by 15%. I received a 1099-k from the online exchange that I use to trade, but they only included the gross dollar volume traded and the number of trades I made. They didn’t include my initial cash deposits or profit/loss from trading in 2017. I know my profit from the 2017 trading year. I followed the instructions from Turbotax’s site to enter the gains as income from realty/royatlies since the government considers cryptocurrencies property. When I saw the amount owed was only about 4% of my profits I tried to enter it as capital gains from stocks/bonds to see if there would be a difference in the amount owed. It gave me the same number, about 4% of the total of my profits. I am a U.S. citizen, but I have lived and worked in China for the past five years. I pay income tax to the Chinese government, so I apply for Foreign Earned Income Exclusion every year. My income was about $16500 this year. Is this the reason my capital gains are being taxed at a lower rate? Or have I done something wrong?
