Getting Past the Review Section
Important Note: Do not be alarmed if TurboTax asks you to review each imported crypto transaction individually. You can skip this individual review process by following these steps.
Here is the review screen you might see which TurboTax refers to as the completecheck™ to-do list.
Each individual crypto transaction has the option to review, but you can skip this.
Simply scroll to the bottom of the page (sometimes hundreds of transactions) and click Continue.
Click Continue again to get past this warning.
Amending for Previous Years
Important Note #2: TurboTax Online has disabled the ability to upload CSV files when amending a return for previous years. If you need to amend, please follow the TurboTax Desktop Guide.
