Does Crypto.com Tax report my crypto data to the government?
We do not send your tax reports to any government organizations on your behalf. However, we may be required to issue a Form 1099-MISC to you if you are a US citizen who has earned USD $600 or more in rewards from Crypto.com. We will also provide a copy of your form to the U.S. Internal Revenue Service as required by law. For more details on Form 1099, you may refer to this article.

How do I solve the below error messages on the transactions overview page?
Missing purchase history for <Amount> <Token>. Your calculation can be wrong.
When you dispose of crypto that you do not hold in your imported accounts in Crypto.com Tax, this error message will pop up. If there is missing purchase history, we will assume the cost basis of tokens disposed to be 0.
You can fix this by either manually adding the missing crypto purchase to the account or importing the missing tokens through API/CSV upload. You can add the missing purchase in 2 ways by following the steps below.
Manual edit: Click Add Transaction + on the Transactions page
API/CSV upload: Click Add Wallet/Exchange + on the Wallets & Exchanges page, and upload the missing purchase via API/CSV
2. Missing one side of the token. Please edit and fix the transaction.
When you import your “Buy/Sell/Trade” transactions via API/CSV and either the incoming/outgoing side is missing, this error message will pop up. You can manually add the missing token by clicking the 3 dots menu on the right-hand side of the transaction, and then click Edit to add the token in Amount Sold/ Amount Bought.
3. Missing the receiving wallet/exchange for the transfer transaction. Your balance can be incorrect.
When the receiving account is missing from a transfer transaction, this message will pop up. You can manually add the receiving Wallet/Exchange by clicking the 3 dots menu and then Edit on the right-hand side of the transaction.
You may find the receiving wallet/exchange is missing for a transfer transaction from your own account in Crypto.com App to Crypto.com Exchange. Please create an empty wallet/exchange for Crypto.com Exchange on the Wallets & Exchanges page if you do not have one. Then, you can edit the transaction and choose Crypto.com Exchange as the receiving exchange.
4. a) This transaction contains a loss that can be potentially disallowed due to repurchase on <MM/DD/YYYY 00:00:00>
b) This is a repurchase transaction that triggers a superficial loss potentially. Crypto.com Tax does not make the tax adjustment in this transaction.
These are specific to Canada’s superficial loss rule. The error messages will pop up when there is a “Buy” transaction within 30 days before or after a “Sell” transaction with a capital loss. The loss should be disallowed and added back to the cost basis of the “Buy” transaction.
Note that Crypto.com Tax does not adjust for you in these transactions. To account for the superficial loss rule, you may do the adjustment by clicking the 3 dots menu and then Edit on the right-hand side of the transaction. You can then manually adjust the cost basis by clicking Set Net Worth on the edit transaction page.
After adjusting the transactions, we suggest you put comments in those transactions to remind yourself that the superficial loss rules have been handled.
