Robinhood Securities 1099

  1. In TurboTax, go to the Wages & Income screen, then select Stocks, Mutual Funds, Bonds, Other
  2. When asked “Did you sell stocks, mutual funds, bonds, or other investments in 2020?” click Yes
  3. Type “Robinhood” in the search bar when asked to enter your bank name, then choose Robinhood - Robinhood Securities.
  4. On the next screen, enter your account number and Document ID
  • Your account number is a 9 digit number found in the top, middle of your 1099
  • Your document ID is an 11 digit alphanumeric ID found in the top right of your 1099. Enter this ID without the spaces.

This import is limited to 1,500 transactions. If you have more than 1,500 transactions, follow the directions in this TurboTax Help Center article.

Robinhood Crypto 1099

  1. In TurboTax, go to the Wages & Income screen, then select Cryptocurrency
  2. When asked “Did you sell or trade cryptocurrency in 2020?” click Yes
  3. Select Robinhood, then click Continue
  4. If you received a Robinhood Crypto 1099, Robinhood also provided a CSV file with your cryptocurrency transactions. Upload your CSV file.
  5. Double check that all of your transactions imported correctly, including the proceeds and cost basis.
  6. Continue through the rest of the process to finish submitting your cryptocurrency income.

This import is limited to 2,250 transactions. If you have more than 2,250 transactions, you’ll need to enter the additional trade information manually.

Troubleshooting: why won’t my file upload?

Here are some common reasons for why your file may not be uploading:

  1. TurboTax only allows you to upload CSV files. Before uploading your file, confirm that the end of your file name says .csv, not .xls or .xlsx. Currently, only CSV files are supported in automatic uploads.

  2. Your tax data may not yet be available on the Open Financial Exchange (OFX). Sometimes your tax data takes additional time to load onto the Open Financial Exchange, which is required for auto-import into tax software. If your data is unavailable the first few days after your tax document is issued, please try again after a week.

  3. The account number or document ID has been entered incorrectly. You can find both of these numbers at the top of your 1099, and they should be entered without spaces.
