Coming Up Next

While the plugin is fully operational, you can expect updates and improvements in the near future. Also, we will be releasing a set of tutorials to show you how the plugin was built to help you get started building your very own!

The ARK Transaction Export plugin has also been referred to as the ARK “Tax” Plugin because of the type of information it exports. While the information is extremely useful and is presented in a clear way, this plugin is not meant to be a substitute for professional financial due diligence. You should always consult a tax professional within your jurisdiction and do your own due diligence so that you are in compliance with all tax laws in your area.

The ARK Transaction Export plugin is the second project completely funded by the ARK Grants program. We are always in search of new ideas and passionate creators who wish to improve the ARK Ecosystem. In addition, the documentation that will follow each completed project will lay a strong foundation for future developers to dive in and get involved.
