Is Coinbase No Longer Supported TurboTax?

Coinbase, the largest cryptocurrency exchange in the United States, is no longer supported by TurboTax, the country’s biggest tax preparation software.

The move was announced by Intuit, the company that owns TurboTax, on Monday. It said that Coinbase users would no longer be able to directly import their transaction data into TurboTax.

“We will no longer support the ability to directly import your Coinbase transactions into TurboTax,” Intuit said in a statement. “You can still manually enter your transactions into TurboTax.”

The decision affects only those who use Coinbase’s services to buy and sell cryptocurrencies. It does not affect those who use the exchange to store their cryptocurrencies.

NOTE: Warning: Coinbase is no longer supported by TurboTax. If you use Coinbase to report your cryptocurrency taxes, you will need to use a different service. Please be sure to use an alternative reporting method if you are using Coinbase.

The news comes as a blow to the cryptocurrency community, which has been eagerly awaiting the arrival of mainstream adoption. For many, the ability to easily and accurately report their cryptocurrency gains and losses to the IRS was seen as a key step in that direction.

It is not clear why Intuit decided to stop supporting Coinbase. The company did not respond to a request for comment.

However, the move comes just weeks after Coinbase was hit with a class action lAWSuit over its alleged failure to prevent insider trading during last year’s Bitcoin Cash fork. It is possible that Intuit decided to distance itself from Coinbase in light of that lAWSuit.

In any case, the loss of TurboTax support is a setback for Coinbase and the cryptocurrency community at large.
