I have a question regarding paying taxes on profit in Germany.
Let’s say that I’ve started trading 10 months ago with 1000 USD in the investing account and made several transactions (selling/buying stocks) and the initial 1000 USD increased to 3000 USD. So, I’ve made 2000 USD profit in the application and still have opened positions now but I’ve not withdrawn my money from the account since the start of the trading.
My question is, should I pay taxes on the 2000 USD profit in the app even though I haven’t yet withdrawn the profit?.
Another question is: If I withdrew 1000 USD from the account and left the 2000 USD profit in it (as opened positions), does this considered the initial 1000 USD that I deposited in the beginning and shouldn’t pay taxes on it?
Many thanks in advance!
