In this guide, we will explain how to download your Coinbase transaction history. This is ideal if you need to submit your taxes for US customers or for your own personal records. Downloading Coinbase trading transaction history is only available on the Coinbase.com website, unfortunately, the mobile app isn’t currently supported.
Coinbase began issuing IRS Forms 1099-MISC for US customers to report their gains and losses to the IRS. Any US-based customers who sold or converted crypto are subject to US taxes. You are required to report your gains/losses when using Coinbase.com, Coinbase Pro, and Coinbase Prime.
Non-US Coinbase customers will not receive any forms and will need to download their transaction history to fulfil their own local tax obligations.
Please note, this guide is not tax advice and will only explain how you can download our Coinbase transaction history. For tax advice please speak with a professional.
How to Download Coinbase Transaction History
Downloading your Coinbase transactions is an easy process when you know-how. Follow our step-by-step guide for full instructions:
1. Sign-in to Your Coinbase Account
You will first need to be signed in to your Coinbase account. If you´re using a desktop, click on your “Profile Icon“, and if using a mobile, click the “Menu Bar“.
The Coinbase App does not support downloading your transaction history.
2. Navigate to “Reports”
Once you have signed into Coinbase, go to “Reports”. (when using a desktop, once you click your profile icon, navigation will open, then click “Reports“.) However, when using your phone, a navigation menu will open, and there are things such as prices and portfolio, so scroll down a little more until you find the “Reports” option.
3. Generate Coinbase Report
From the reports page, there is a section named “Transaction History” which allows you to run a report on all orders (buy, sell, convert) for all cryptocurrencies associated with your Coinbase account, as well as any crypto you sent or received via Coinbase.
You will then need to click on “Generate Report“.
4. Filter and Download Coinbase Transaction History
The information displayed in your report can be filtered by “All time“, “All assets“, and “All transactions“. You can also choose for the report to be in CSV format or PDF.
Once you filter the information and choose the format you require, click “Generate Report“.
When the report is generated you will have the option to “Download“.
Once the download is complete, it’s done. The report will either automatically open or check your downloads folder for your transaction history!
