Looking to report your cryptocurrency taxes on TaxSlayer? 

In this guide, we’ll cover everything you need to know about how to report cryptocurrency on TaxSlayer. We’ll break down a step-by-step process to help you report your crypto transactions on TaxSlayer in minutes. 

Does TaxSlayer support cryptocurrency? 

Yes. TaxSlayer allows users to manually import cryptocurrency-related transactions and include them with your tax return. 

Why can’t TaxSlayer directly import my cryptocurrency transactions? 

While TaxSlayer is one of the best tax platforms on the market, it’s important to remember that it wasn’t built specifically for cryptocurrency. As a result, it may not have the full functionality you need to report your cryptocurrency taxes.

Luckily, there’s an easier way. Crypto tax software like CoinLedger allows you to automatically import your transactions from all of your wallets and exchanges. Then, you can generate a comprehensive crypto tax report that you can export into platforms like TaxSlayer!

How to report cryptocurrency gains and losses on TaxSlayer 

Here’s how you can use CoinLedger to import your cryptocurrency tax reports into TaxSlayer.

1. Connect your wallets and exchanges to CoinLedger. 

2. Click the button labeled Tax Filing Software on the right hand side of the ‘Tax Reports’ section.
