Hello! How can we help?

How do I get my transaction history?

  1. Click on your name in the top right corner and select Settings
  2. Go to the Advanced tab
  3. Click Request Transactions at the bottom of the page

Circle will send you an email with your last year's transaction history attached as a CSV file. In other words, requesting the history in 2017 will provide all of your transactions from 2016.

In this report you can expect the following details about each transaction:

  • Date and Time
  • Reference ID
  • Transaction type
  • From account (which funding source or sender)
  • To account (can be a debit card/bank or another bitcoin address)
  • BTC amount
  • USD equivalent amount
  • Status of the transaction
  • USD to BTC conversion rate (at the time of transaction)
  • Rather than BTC, could also be GBP or EUR

Taxes and your Circle account

Bitcoin transactions and trading may be subject to tax liabilities.

  • Income - If bitcoin is used for payment for goods or services, it is considered income and is subject to income tax rules.
  • Capital Gains - When you have incurred profit or loss from buying and selling bitcoin, it is recommended that you claim this on your taxes.

Circle will maintain a record of your transaction history, which you will be able to access through your Circle Account for purposes of making any required tax filings or payments, but it is your responsibility to determine what, if any, taxes apply to the payments you make or receive, and to collect, report, and remit the correct tax to the appropriate tax authority. Circle will make any tax withholdings or filings that we are required by law to make, but Circle is not responsible for determining whether taxes apply to your transaction, or for collecting, reporting, or remitting any taxes arising from any transaction.
