Are non-fungible tokens (NFTs) taxable in Canada?

Rounding it up

  • NFTs, or non-fungible tokens, are digital assets like GIFs, images, songs, tweets, or sports plays.

  • NFTs allow creators to continue to profit off the sale of their art with embedded royalties, using blockchain technology to track ownership.

  • Canada taxes NFT sales depending on the type of income realized at sale; they’ll either be business or capital gains.
