How do I check my Hedera import is accurate?

Something doesn't look right? Checking your transactions and correcting any inaccuracies lets Koinly calculate and generate the most accurate tax reports for you. There are a few simple steps you can follow to make sure your tax report is accurate:

Sync all wallets, exchanges and blockchains

Koinly needs your entire transaction history to calculate your crypto taxes - so make sure you’ve connected every single wallet, exchange and blockchain you use with Koinly.

If there’s an issue with a specific data import, Koinly will flag the wallet, exchange or blockchain with a small yellow icon - click the icon to find out what the issue is and how to resolve it.

Check your imported data

Sometimes a CSV file might be missing certain kinds of transactions or an API doesn’t include all your transaction data - so it’s important you check everything has been imported to Koinly correctly. You can:

  1. Filter your transactions by deposits and withdrawals and check there aren’t any large transactions which are actually transfers.
  2. Use the warning filter to check for any missing costs or missing rates.
  3. Check any warnings on the tax reports page, just above your tax summary.

Review the tags on your transactions

Last up, review the tags on your transactions. Koinly normally does this automatically, but it's always good to double check the tags are correct for your country’s crypto tax rules (find your crypto tax rules). Here’s the tags you can use and when to use them.

Withdrawal tags (sending crypto)

  • Gift: tag any gifts of crypto - in many countries, this is tax free.
  • Lost: you can claim lost or stolen crypto as a capital loss in many countries. 
  • Sent to pool: use this tag when you’ve sent crypto to staking pools - not liquidity pools, these are taxed differently.
  • Cost, interest payment and margin fee: Use these tags as appropriate for your expenses. You’ll still realize a profit or loss from the transaction, but they’ll show up in the expense section of your report and may be tax deductible. 

Deposit tags (receiving crypto)

  • Airdrop: tag any airdrops, you can treat these as income in your settings.
  • Fork: tag any coins from hard forks, you can treat these as income in your settings.
  • Mining: you can adjust whether mining is treated as income in your settings.
  • Reward: tag staking rewards, referral bonuses and other kinds of rewards.
  • Loan interest: loan interest is always treated as income and separated out in your report.
  • Income: tag any income you make in crypto so it’s correctly marked in your report.
  • Received from pool: use this tag when you remove crypto from staking pools - not liquidity pools, these are taxed differently.

Other tags

  • Realized P&L: use for futures, contracts and options trades, this lets Koinly know to treat the entire transaction as profit or loss.
  • Swap: use this tag for any tax free trade of crypto - like migrations and rebases.
  • Liquidity in/out: you can't apply this tag manually, but Koinly will apply it when you're sending or receiving crypto from a liquidity pool.

It's really helpful to use our Getting Started Guide before reviewing your transactions. This can help you identify and resolve any issues in no time at all.
