Your total transactions number will not align perfectly with the lines on your tax forms. For example, “buys” won’t appear as a separate line on the IRS 8949 tax form, but must still be accounted for in order to report your cost basis. Similarly, transfers will not appear on your IRS 8949 because transferring cryptocurrency to yourself is not a taxable event.
Additionally, transactions on your tax form may be separated on different lines on your tax form if you had multiple cost basis pools in an asset that was disposed of. You can click on any transaction and drill into your exact cost basis information and easily see how everything ties out.
