  • TurboTax may ask you to review all of your transactions. A review will appear from any source added to TurboTax (both OAuth and CSV), not only Zenledger. Users can skip the review section by selecting Continue without reviewing.

  • TurboTax has limits on the numbers of transactions it can import, if it is more than their set number, we aggregate the file for the user. If you use our summary/aggregated TurboTax 8949 file that only reports one line for short-term and one line for long-term gains/losses, you still need to file or mail in your full 8949 to the IRS. Please consult a tax professional regarding this if you have any questions.
