CoinTracker & H&R Block Integration and Crypto FAQs

CoinTracker is a cryptocurrency portfolio assistant that allows users to track their crypto performance taxes and more. You can import your crypto transactions from most exchanges and then import that data into your H&R Block tax return.

Yes, we’ve made it easier for you this year! Previously, you would have to copy and paste each row from Form 8949 created by CoinTracker into H&R Block. This year, we’ve improved the experience.

Essentially, you’ll log in one at a time.  After importing and reviewing your tax information from your own CoinTracker account, make sure to log out of the CoinTracker application (cointracker.io). Then, your spouse can log into their CoinTracker account and import their crypto data.

CoinTracker’s application lists all the transactions made. What’s imported to H&R Block are the purchase prices (cost basis lots) for those transactions. For example, if you purchased 1 BTC in 2020 for one amount and another 1 BTC in 2021 for another amount, then sold both 2 BTC in 2022 in a single sale transaction, CoinTracker’s application lists the sale of those 2 BTC as one transaction. Since the one transaction included two different purchase prices, two rows of data were imported.

You can collaborate with your tax pro in a couple of ways. Your tax pro can access your data and reconcile transactions on your behalf.
Follow the steps below to invite your tax pro.
1.       Log in to your CoinTracker account
2.       Click on your email in the upper right
3.       Click ‘Add tax professional’
4.       Click ‘Invite tax pro’
5.       Add your tax professional’s email and click ‘Invite’

A premium plan is required for tax pro collaboration on CoinTracker, which can be purchased by tax pros or by end users directly.

Yes, you should file crypto taxes if you’ve lost money on crypto because you may be able to reduce your taxes by offsetting capital gains against the losses and potentially deducting the losses. This is called tax loss harvesting.

Here’s the good news. Thanks to the integration all your data will transfer seamlessly from your CoinTracker account onto all the necessary forms as part of your return completed through H&R Block.

This will likely include:

●        Form 8949 (Sales and Other Dispositions of Capital Assets). This is a complete list of every cryptocurrency disposal you have had (e.g. sell, trade, send to a third party, etc.).
●        Schedule D (Capital Gains and Losses). This shows a total of your capital gains across all asset classes.
●        Form 1040 (Individual Income Tax Return). This reflects if you’ve received crypto or sold/ exchanged/ gifted/ disposed of a digital asset. 
●        Schedule 1. This includes any income from hard forks, airdrops, mining, or payments and will go on the “Other income” line z (for 2022).
As a CoinTracker user, you will be provided with Form 8949, Schedule D, and Schedule 1 which is everything you need to complete the cryptocurrency portion of your tax filing. For other forms, please see CoinTracker’s help page.

This is a common question as it can be a bit confusing to know which situations apply.  When you file with H&R Block Online, we’ll ask you about your crypto usage to cover this question.
Select ‘Yes’ if you:
●        Exchanged digital assets for goods, services, or property
●        Exchanged or traded one digital asset for another digital asset
●        Sold digital assets
●        Received digital assets as payment
●        Received digital asset for free that doesn’t quality as a bona fide gift (Ex: airdrop)
●        Received digital assets for mining or staking
●        Received digital assets as a result of a hard fork
●        Transferred or distributed financial interests in digital assets
Select ‘No’ if you:
●        Only held digital assets (virtual currency, NFTs) in your wallet or account
●        Transferred digital assets between your own wallets or accounts
●        Purchased digital assets using real currency 

Similar to cryptocurrency, non-fungible tokens (NFTs) are units of data stored on a digital ledger called a blockchain. Unlike cryptocurrency where any unit can be swapped out for another without changing the value of the asset — NFTs are unique and therefore not interchangeable. In plain terms, NFTs are unique digital assets.

NFTs  can be used to represent digital files such as photos, videos, audio, etc. For example, Bored Ape Yacht Club is a popular collection of thousands of digital ape avatars with different facial features and characteristics.

NFTs are considered property and can be subject to both capital gains and income tax. The way NFTs are taxed will depend on if you are a creator (creating/ minting and selling NFTs) or an investor (buying/ selling NFTs).
The types of taxable events for creators include:
●        Minting/selling an NFT
●        Earning NFT royalties
The types of taxable events for an investor include:
●        Purchasing an NFT
●        Selling an NFT
