Somewhere on this forum I read that for crypto currency transaction one must have online version of premier TT
so we can use desktop version for crypt related transactions?
and for desktop version we can have 5 federal efile included(whole family) vs online you have only one efile (one person?)
If 5 efile - can we efile for a friend or he/she must be a blood relative ?
Can u please respond to all the questions
there is no way to upload a file prepared by crypto.com tax software in to desktop premier version of TT?
Also it says 5 returns - can I file for a friend or he/she must be a close blood relative ?
Yes you can do a friends return. There is a way to get crypto into the Desktop program.
You can only import crypto into the Online version. For Desktop program you can start a free online Premier return to import it then download the .tax2021 file for free and open it in the Desktop program. But that would mean starting over with the new file and losing all the Desktop entries you already made.

Ok thanks ..
I also want to know for premier desktop version - when we add a SCH 1 for add other income(additional income and adjustment to income)
can we add a statement to explain what that other income is ?
I am asking because a relative has foreign capital gains and foreign interest income where they don't give required 1099 forms either B or INT or DIV - so last year she declared as other income and give explanation as foreign capital gains ..and foreign interest income etc and it was accepted by IRS.
She wanted to add that income as regular capital gains or interest/dividend but she could not because like I said it was foreign broker/bank ..they dont issue 1099 forms so basically they neither report to IRS or even give 1099 forms so there was no way to validate if she reported as regular capital gains or interest.
