Optimize and Review your Tax Data
Make sure you have set-up all your wallets and tax settings correctly. To begin, navigate to the “Review” tab located on the left-hand side of the platform. This tab houses four sections: “Unknown currencies”, “Identify internals”, “Classify transfers”, and “Missing funds”.
First, head to the “Unknown currencies” tab and check for any coins that can’t be recognized by the platform’s database. If you are familiar with the coin in question, you can add it as a new currency. This will ensure that the platform can accurately calculate the gain or loss on the asset. If the coin is not recognized and you have never heard of it or interacted with it, it may be a scam coin. In this case, you can ask the platform to ignore it.
Next, check for any internal transactions that may have been missed. Internal transactions, which are transfers between two of your own wallets, are not taxable. The platform will flag potential internal transactions, but you should double-check that they are definitely between two of your own wallets. This will ensure that your tax bill is not higher than it needs to be.
To further optimize your portfolio for crypto taxes, you will need to review and classify any transactions that the platform couldn’t do for you. Classifications are labels that tell you why or how a transaction was made and are directly connected to how the assets are taxed. It is important to understand the tax implications of your transactions and to ensure that they are labeled correctly.
Additionally, you can use the Missing Funds tool to find any missing transactions and make sure that your portfolio is complete. We recommend that you investigate any missing data, however, in the case that you cannot locate the right data, “Fix for me” will add a reconciliation transaction to make sure your portfolio is accurate.
By following these steps, you can stay on top of your crypto tax compliance and ensure that your portfolio is optimized for taxes.
