Cash App provides free tax filing for state and federal returns through Cash App Taxes.
Follow these steps to include your IRS Form 8949 gains and losses information from TaxBit into Cash App Taxes to make the process as simple as possible.
Please Note: Cash App provides a 1099-B form. For this year, the 1099-B form only includes the proceeds, or sales amount, of your Bitcoin sales during the year. It does not include the amount your cost basis, or amount you paid, for that Bitcoin.
By following our import guide for Cash App, you can generate a Form 8949 that provides both sales proceeds and cost basis information to accurately file your tax return.

Step 1: Once all of your data has been imported or synced to TaxBit, you can download Form 8949 from your account. All you need to do is visit the Taxes page, click the Download IRS 8949 button, and download the PDF version.
