Good to know
You'll need to set up two-factor authentication to use the API management feature in Binance US, so make sure you've done this before you try to auto-sync with Koinly. The Binance US API doesn't include your fiat purchases, you'll need to add these transactions manually or use the CSV file import method below. Once you've selected secure import, it'll take a couple of minutes for Koinly to sync your data, so don't worry if you don't see your transactions straight away. If you see a small yellow icon next to your Binance US wallet, this is Koinly telling you there is an issue with the API data. You can click on the yellow icon to identify the exact transactions there is an issue with. Then, click the three dots next to your wallet and select troubleshoot to find out how to resolve them.

How to import your Binance US tax report CSV file to Koinly

On Binance US

  1. Log in to your Binance US account.
  2. Hover over your email address in the top right corner.
  3. Select tax statements from the drop down menu.
  4. Select export statement.
  5. Select yearly report.
  6. Select the year you'd like to export. Remember, you'll need your entire transaction history to upload to Koinly, so make sure you download as many years as you need to to cover the entire period you've had your Binance US account.

On Koinly

  1. Sign up or log in to your Koinly account and go to wallets.
  2. Select add new wallet: Binance US.
  3. Select import from file.
  4. Upload your CSV file(s).
  5. Select import.

Good to know
The CSV file import method is better for many traders. This is because the Binance US API is limited in the data it returns, so transactions like fiat purchases may not be included. If you're using the CSV file method because the API integration had missing data, it's important you delete the transactions you imported. You can do this by deleting your existing Binance US wallet. You can also do this by deleting the existing transactions within it by selecting the three dots on the right hand side of your Binance US wallet in Koinly, then selecting troubleshoot. On the next page, you'll see an option to delete existing trades and to delete existing transactions. You should import transaction data for as long as you've been using your Binance US account, even if you're only filing taxes for the current tax year.
