You need to take it one step further as this is vital in reporting your cryptocurrency transactions to the IRS. 

  1. Log into Turbo Tax

  2. Go to federal>wages and income>investment income>show more

  3. Scroll to the bottom of this heading and select cryptocurrency

  4. Since you already selected that you traded virtual currency, you will probably already see that heading in your income and expenses summary page when you click on wages and income.

It does not show a "Show more" selection under Investment Income... where do I enter the information for the transaction for a loss on sale?

Please verify what version of TurboTax you’re using.

With TurboTax Online open, you can generally navigate to the Cryptocurrency section following this path:

  1. Click Federal in the left pane.
  2. Click Income & Expenses in the top banner.
  3. Scroll down and click Show more to the right of Investment Income.
  4. At the bottom of the Investment Income list, click Start next to Cryptocurrency.

Hi... I am using Turbotax Premier, the version purchased at store, so not solely downloaded.  I do not see "Income and Expenses" ..... under the Federal Taxes tab, I see Wages and Income, Deductions and Credits, Other Tax Situations, Federal Review, etc... not sure if I am in the correct place.  Thank you for your help!

Using the TurboTax desktop software -

Click on Federal Taxes

Click on Wages & Income

Click on I'll choose what I work on

Scroll down to the bottom of the page and click on Done with Income

Continue until you land on the screen labeled Did you acquire, sell, or exchange any virtual currency in 2020?
