Home Page Overview

The Online Banking home page is designed to help you complete your everyday money management tasks quickly and easily from one place. In fact, we've brought together the tools needed to perform your most common daily tasks without ever leaving the page. You can easily:

  • Check all of your account balances at once
  • Take a quick peek at your most recent transactions
  • Make a one-time transfer between your accounts
  • Transfer funds to select account holders who also bank here
  • Make a credit card or loan payment within My Accounts
  • Schedule a one-time bill payment
  • See where you are spending your money

So instead of switching between multiple pages, you can take action right there on one page to complete several basic functions. We hope you will think of it as your money management control panel.

My Accounts

This is where you can see all of your accounts and balances in one glance without having to scroll. In the upper-right portion of My Accounts you will find the Make a transfer icon and link that enables you to make a one-time funds transfer between your accounts and much more. To view the most recent activity for any account, click the Quick peek link. Clicking Quick peek opens a new window that shows the most recent transactions or payment activity for the account along with links to Make a transfer and Go to account history.

Make a Transfer

Just select the Make a transfer button to make a one-time transfer between your accounts or to transfer funds to a customer/member you have previously set up with us. You may also be able to transfer funds to make a credit card payment or a loan payment, if those options are available. If there are any restrictions on the number of transfers allowed per month or any transfer fees applied, it will be indicated in a message displayed below the To or From field (or both).

Selecting the Make a transfer button opens the Move Money window above the My Accounts list. Just enter the amount, select the transfer To and From accounts and add a memo if needed, then click the Transfer button and confirm the transfer details and you're done. Transactions now post immediately when you complete a transfer. This means that we will automatically refresh the page (to get the new account balances) when you close the transfers success window.

NOTE: If you are making a credit card or loan payment, additional fields may be available to enter the required information. If available, additional options for scheduled recurring transfers, external transfers or wire transfers may be found within the main Online Banking pages.

View My Spending

If you are a FinanceWorks user, the pie chart shows all of your spending trends with a summary of your transactions for the past 30 days, categorized and broken out as totals and percentages. You can click on a pie piece to see a complete list of transactions for the selected category.

If you are not yet a FinanceWorks user, you will instead see a message encouraging you to try FinanceWorks. Just click the link below the message to go to FinanceWorks and get started.

The My Accounts section in the upper left area has all of your accounts categorized by type (Deposit, Savings, Loans, etc.) with the current balance and available balance for each account. Within each category group the accounts are listed in alphabetical order by name either the original account name or the account nickname that you assigned.

Your first Deposit account is displayed at the top of the list and shows the balance and available balance. The Total Accounts value is displayed at the bottom of each account section. NOTE: Joint accounts display both the username and account number to better identify which user is on the account.

CD or Certificate Account Maturity Date

If available with your online services, you will be able to see the Maturity Date of your CD or Certificate Account in the account bar without having to access the account details. If the maturity date is available, it is displayed as "Matures on MM/DD/YYYY".

Quick Peek

Clicking Quick Peek opens a new window that shows the balance and available balance along with the most recent transactions or payment activity for that account. High transaction volume accounts (like Checking) will show 5 days of account activity. Low volume accounts (like loans) will show 30 days of account activity. You will also find helpful links to Make a Transfer and Go to account history at the bottom of the window.

Just click the X button on the top right or anywhere outside of the window to close it. Clicking the account name or the Go to account history link opens the Account History page for that account.

For all loan accounts you will see the balance, next payment amount, a Pay now link (to make the loan payment), interest paid for the current and previous years, recent payments made, and a link to the account history page. Clicking the Pay now link will open the Move money window so you can complete the payment.

For all credit card accounts you will see the balance, next payment minimum amount due, a Pay now link (to make the credit card payment), interest paid for the current and previous years, recent purchases made, and a link to the account history page.

View Your Spending

If you are a FinanceWorks user, you will see the familiar pie chart in the View My Spending section. The pie chart is created with your transaction data that comes directly from FinanceWorks. It shows your spending over the past 30 days and each spending category that you have used is represented by a slice of the pie.

The pie slice categories are listed in a legend next to the chart and show the total value and percentage of the total amount. Please be aware that only Personal spending categories and NOT those categorized as Business expenses will appear in the spending chart.

Resting or hovering your mouse over one of the pie slices, displays the category name, total amount and percentage in a pop-up.

If you are not yet a FinanceWorks user, instead of the spending pie chart you will see a message encouraging you to sign up. Just click the Go to FinanceWorks link or icon to get started, if it is available.

The account names or nicknames within a category appear in alphabetical order, so you can change the account nicknames so the accounts display in the order you want, e.g., My Savings Account will display before zAdvantage Savings Acct because of the added 'z'.

Scheduled recurring transfer and wire transfers

The Move Money option is used for one-time transactions - transfer funds or make a credit card or loan payment. If available, additional options for scheduled recurring transfers, external transfers or wire transfers may be found within the main Online Banking pages.

Account History Page Overview

We hope that you will take a few moments to try all the buttons and links to see what the Account History page can do. It still has the transactions for all of your accounts, credit cards and loans. In the upper left of the page you will see the account name with the last four digits of the account number. Next to the account name and number there's a Change Account link that lets you quickly switch from your primary account to another account.

Below the account name you'll find the current date range for the transaction list (for example, April 2 - April 11, 2012) and you can use the left and right buttons next to the date range to go forward or backwards in time to explore adjacent transactions. You can also switch to another time period using the date range dropdown.

To the right of the date range you will see the Make a transfer icon and link that opens the Move Money window where you can make a one-time transfer between your accounts or transfer funds to a customer/member you have previously set up with us. You can also use Move Money to pay your credit card bill or make a loan payment.

To the right of Make a transfer you will find the Export icon and link. When selected it opens an Export window that enables you to export your transactions. To the right of the Export link you will find the Print icon and link that open a new window with the transactions presented in a print-friendly format. At the upper right of the page you will find balance information displayed for that account (e.g., Balance and Available Balance).

Just below the Transfer, Export and Print links are fields that help you search for specific transaction types (check, deposit, etc.), payees, check numbers or amounts. You can select the transaction type in the Narrow type dropdown field (Any, the default = all transaction types available). Then use the containing field to enter exactly what you are looking for: a payee (like Target or Safeway), a check number or specific dollar amount. The system will refresh the page with anything that matches your search criteria within the selected date range. If no results are returned, you will have the option to widen the search range of dates.

On the New History page you can:

  • View transactions for all of your available accounts
  • Change the date range to view additional transactions
  • Change the default date range that is used
  • Change the transaction sort order and make it the default
  • Search for transactions, payees or amounts within a selected date range

  • Make a one-time transfer between your available accounts
  • Make a credit card or loan payment using Move Money

Your Transactions

Your account transactions area is located on the left side of the screen and takes up most of the page. This is where you can see the most recent account activity sorted by date with your most recent transactions at the top.

You can also access older transactions for that account using the forward/backward buttons to go forward or backward in time. You can also change the date range using the date range dropdown list.

Each transaction shows the most relevant information for the type of account that's selected. For example, a checking account might display date, description, deposit, withdrawal, and balance. NOTE: If Memo text is added for a check transaction, the memo will appear in the Description column.

Make a transfer

Just select the Make a transfer link that's next to the Print link to make a one-time transfer between your accounts or transfer funds to a customer/member you have previously set up with us. You can also use Move Money to make a credit card payment or a loan payment.

Selecting the Make a transfer link opens the Move Money window above your account history list. Just enter the amount, select the transfer To and From accounts and add a memo if needed, then click the Transfer button and confirm the transfer details and you're done. Transactions now post immediately when you complete a transfer. This means that we will automatically refresh the page (to get the new account balances) when you close the transfers success window.

NOTE: If you are making a credit card or a loan payment, additional fields may be available to enter the required information. If available, additional options for scheduled recurring transfers, external transfers or wire transfers may be found within the main Online Banking pages.

Account History Page Access

As you might imagine, there are several ways to get to the Account History page. One or more of the following access points may be available to you.

From the Home Page:
  • Account Name - Click the blue account name to open the Account History page with transactions for that account.
  • Quick Peek - Within the Quick Peek overlay just click the Go to Account History link at the bottom of the display to open the Account History page with recent transactions for that account.

  5. When finished, click the Done button.
  6. You should see your account nicknames the next time you log in to Online Banking.

NOTE: These changes can take up to five minutes or more to take effect.

Exporting Transactions

You can now export your transactions from the Account History page using two basic export options: Comma Separated Value (.csv) and OFX (.ofx) formats. CSV can be used with Excel or similar software while OFX is used by some software vendors to export transaction data.

Both types are available for all accounts and will extract all transactions within the selected date range. Soon you will also be able to use export formats for Quicken (QFX) and QuickBooks (QBO) directly on the Account History page.

NOTE: If no transactions are available for an account within the selected date range, the Export button will be grayed out (disabled) and cannot be selected.

To export to Excel using Firefox*:

  1. First make sure that you have the date range for the data you want to export (month, 30 days or custom date range).
  2. Click the Export button with CSV selected (the default).
  3. Select the Open with Microsoft Excel radio button (or you can select a different export option from the dropdown list).
  4. Click the OK button to open the Downloads window with the downloaded file at the top of the list.
  5. Double-click the file to open the data in Excel.

*These steps may vary depending on the browser type you are using.

Copy / Paste Transactions

Yes you can copy data from the transaction list and paste it into standard spreadsheets like Excel. Just highlight and copy the data you want (e.g., date, description or amount) and paste it into a row of the spreadsheet or anywhere you want (Word doc, notepad, etc.).

Select a Different Account

To switch from viewing your primary account, just click the Change account link or drop-down arrow to open a list of your active accounts. The current account is highlighted on the list but just click on a different account name to select it. When a selection is made the page refreshes with the transactions for the new account.

Find Transactions

The transaction list shows your most recent transactions in descending order by date for the date range displayed. The transaction description appears on the first line along with other relevant information (e.g., amount and balance). If there is a Rewards program offer for any transaction it will display on the second line. If the transaction is a check, you can click the check number link to see the front and back of the check image.

You may have noticed the Make a transfer icon and link in upper right corner of the transaction list. Just click the icon or link to open the Move Money window.

Filtering Transactions

Just below the Make a transfer, Export and Print links you'll find a Show items containing field that allows you to filter your search for a specific item or group of items by entering key words in the field. You can use numbers, letters, or a combination of the two (e.g., Target, 25.00, #1234, etc.).

The system will return all of the results that match the key word(s) for the selected date range in the transaction's list located just below the filter field. For example, entering 'Chev' in the field returned results for Chevron.

The system combs through the Description, Deposit and Withdrawal columns based on the selected date range and displays any matching values. If no matches were found, the system will prompt you to Try last 90 days and use a wider date range.

Selecting the Try last 90 days link resets the date range to the past 90 days. Otherwise, you can click the Clear link to remove the current filter values and start over.

To use filtering:

  1. First make sure that you have the date range that you want to search (month, 30 days or custom date range).
  2. Enter the specific value that you are looking for in the Show items containing field. (The page will refresh again to show only the matching items.)
  3. If the system could not find any match, you'll have the option to Try last 90 days or click Clear to start over.
  4. If you still weren't able to locate the item you want, consider adjusting the date range further and try again.

Change Date Range and Set Default?

You can change the date range by selecting your desired date range from the date range dropdown list. To make the new range your default date range, choose Always use this date range from the date range dropdown list. The options that can be used to set the date range are: 10 day, 30 day, or monthly increments. NOTE: Custom date ranges are not allowed as a default.

When you set a new date range as the default, the system displays a temporary green check mark to the left of the new value. Otherwise, a warning icon will alert you that the new date range was not saved. If an error condition should occur, just try selecting Always use this date range again.

Temporarily Changing the Date Range

You can use the handy left and right buttons to go forward or backwards in time to explore adjacent transactions. Or to select a different date range just click on the date range dropdown and select another time period.

Use a Custom Date Range

To enter a custom date range, click the From calendar icon and use the « » controls to navigate to the month you want and click on the date you want. Repeat those steps for the to calendar icon and click the Go button to display transactions for the new date range.

Change the Default Sort Order

By default your sort order is date descending (meaning that the most recent transactions are at the top). If you would like to change the default sort order, click the arrow to reverse the sort to date ascending (oldest transactions at the top) and your preference will automatically be saved. NOTE: Saving your default sort order only applies to the Date column.

If you want to change the sort order just click on another column header, except for the Balance column which cannot be sorted. NOTE: If the sort order of any column is changed (other than Date), the Balance column will not be displayed.

View Check Images

If this feature is available, whenever you have a check transaction in the list it will be displayed as an active link if the check image is available. Just click the link to view the check in an area that opens below. Then click the Close button (in the upper right part of the window) when you are finished.

NOTE: You will not be able to access check images that have been available for more than 120 days. For expired checks, the check number will no longer display as an active link but instead it will be a solid number.

Expired Check Images

Typically all check images are displayed online for 90-120 days, then they expire and can't be displayed. An expired check displays a solid check number (not as an active link) and can no longer be selected.

NOTE: If you need to view a check image for a specific check that was cashed more than 120 days ago, please contact Customer Service or your local branch to see if the check image can be retrieved for you.

Printing Transactions

In the upper-right portion of the transaction history list, you will also find a Print icon and link that, when selected, opens a new window with the transactions presented in a printer-friendly format. The transactions that are printed match the same date range of the transactions that are displayed on the page. The standard browser Print window opens over the transaction list and gives you the option to select another printer (if needed). Clicking the Print button sends the transaction list to the printer.

Printing Checks

Click the link provided to view the check image. With the check image open, click the Print icon or link that's above the transaction list. The front and back of the check are displayed and the standard browser Print window opens over the check images. You can select another printer (if needed), then click the Print button to send the check images to the printer.

Make a Transfer

In the upper right portion of your account transaction list you will see the Make a transfer link and clicking the link opens the Move Money window. Select the From and To accounts, enter the transfer amount and memo text, if needed, then click the Transfer button. If it applies, the number of transfers available and number of transfers used for the month will be displayed below the From or To field (or both). NOTE: You can use the switch accounts button to switch the From and To account values if ever needed.

You will get a message asking you to confirm the funds transfer.

When you click the Make Transfer button a transfer complete window will display with all of the relevant transfer details and the option to Make another transfer or Print the transfer details. Transactions will post immediately when you complete the transfer.

This means that we will automatically refresh the page (to get new account balances) when you close the transfer's success window. NOTE: If an issue should occur during the transfer process, an error message will instruct you what to do next.

  5. Double-click the file to open the data in Excel.

*These steps may vary depending on the browser type you are using.

Copy / Paste Transactions

Yes you can copy data from the transaction list and paste it into standard spreadsheets like Excel. Just highlight and copy the data you want (e.g., date, description or amount) and paste it into a row of the spreadsheet or anywhere you want (Word doc, notepad, etc.).

Select a Different Account

To switch from viewing your primary account, just click the Change account link or drop-down arrow to open a list of your active accounts. The current account is highlighted on the list but just click on a different account name to select it. When a selection is made the page refreshes with the transactions for the new account.

Find Transactions

The transaction list shows your most recent transactions in descending order by date for the date range displayed. The transaction description appears on the first line along with other relevant information (e.g., amount and balance). If there is a Rewards program offer for any transaction it will display on the second line. If the transaction is a check, you can click the check number link to see the front and back of the check image.

You may have noticed the Make a transfer icon and link in upper right corner of the transaction list. Just click the icon or link to open the Move Money window.

Filtering Transactions

Just below the Make a transfer, Export and Print links you'll find a Show items containing field that allows you to filter your search for a specific item or group of items by entering key words in the field. You can use numbers, letters, or a combination of the two (e.g., Target, 25.00, #1234, etc.).

The system will return all of the results that match the key word(s) for the selected date range in the transaction's list located just below the filter field. For example, entering 'Chev' in the field returned results for Chevron.

The system combs through the Description, Deposit and Withdrawal columns based on the selected date range and displays any matching values. If no matches were found, the system will prompt you to Try last 90 days and use a wider date range.

Selecting the Try last 90 days link resets the date range to the past 90 days. Otherwise, you can click the Clear link to remove the current filter values and start over.

To use filtering:

  1. First make sure that you have the date range that you want to search (month, 30 days or custom date range).
  2. Enter the specific value that you are looking for in the Show items containing field. (The page will refresh again to show only the matching items.)
  3. If the system could not find any match, you'll have the option to Try last 90 days or click Clear to start over.
  4. If you still weren't able to locate the item you want, consider adjusting the date range further and try again.

Change Date Range and Set Default?

You can change the date range by selecting your desired date range from the date range dropdown list. To make the new range your default date range, choose Always use this date range from the date range dropdown list. The options that can be used to set the date range are: 10 day, 30 day, or monthly increments. NOTE: Custom date ranges are not allowed as a default.

When you set a new date range as the default, the system displays a temporary green check mark to the left of the new value. Otherwise, a warning icon will alert you that the new date range was not saved. If an error condition should occur, just try selecting Always use this date range again.

Temporarily Changing the Date Range

You can use the handy left and right buttons to go forward or backwards in time to explore adjacent transactions. Or to select a different date range just click on the date range dropdown and select another time period.

Use a Custom Date Range

To enter a custom date range, click the From calendar icon and use the « » controls to navigate to the month you want and click on the date you want. Repeat those steps for the to calendar icon and click the Go button to display transactions for the new date range.

Change the Default Sort Order

By default your sort order is date descending (meaning that the most recent transactions are at the top). If you would like to change the default sort order, click the arrow to reverse the sort to date ascending (oldest transactions at the top) and your preference will automatically be saved. NOTE: Saving your default sort order only applies to the Date column.

If you want to change the sort order just click on another column header, except for the Balance column which cannot be sorted. NOTE: If the sort order of any column is changed (other than Date), the Balance column will not be displayed.

View Check Images

If this feature is available, whenever you have a check transaction in the list it will be displayed as an active link if the check image is available. Just click the link to view the check in an area that opens below. Then click the Close button (in the upper right part of the window) when you are finished.

NOTE: You will not be able to access check images that have been available for more than 120 days. For expired checks, the check number will no longer display as an active link but instead it will be a solid number.

Expired Check Images

Typically all check images are displayed online for 90-120 days, then they expire and can't be displayed. An expired check displays a solid check number (not as an active link) and can no longer be selected.

NOTE: If you need to view a check image for a specific check that was cashed more than 120 days ago, please contact Customer Service or your local branch to see if the check image can be retrieved for you.

Printing Transactions

In the upper-right portion of the transaction history list, you will also find a Print icon and link that, when selected, opens a new window with the transactions presented in a printer-friendly format. The transactions that are printed match the same date range of the transactions that are displayed on the page. The standard browser Print window opens over the transaction list and gives you the option to select another printer (if needed). Clicking the Print button sends the transaction list to the printer.

Printing Checks

Click the link provided to view the check image. With the check image open, click the Print icon or link that's above the transaction list.

You will get a message asking you to confirm the funds transfer.

When you click the Make Transfer button a transfer complete window will display with all of the relevant transfer details and the option to Make another transfer or Print the transfer details. Transactions will post immediately when you complete the transfer.

Login & Security

These security measures have been implemented to improve your Online Banking security. The login security uses a verification code to authenticate yourself via text message and/or a voice call to ensure that it's you trying to access your Online Banking accounts. The options on how to receive your verification codes are provided during the login security setup.

What is Login Security?
Login Security is an online security feature that provides an additional layer of protection from fraud and identity theft by preventing unauthorized access to your secure financial information. Login Security uses technology to verify your identity.

Why do I need to use Login Security?
Login Security allows us to recognize you as the true owner of your account by recognizing not only your login information but also your computer. If we don't recognize your computer, you will be requested to receive a new verification code sent to your phone either via text or voice call in order to authenticate yourself into the Online Banking experience.

Do I have to receive a verification code every time I log in?
In order to bypass the verification code on subsequent logins, you can select to remember your device upon logging in so that we recognize your device the next time you log in and not require you to complete this step again.

Can I login from multiple computers and browsers?
Yes you can, we support most of the commonly used browsers. If you log in from a public computer, you will have to use a verification code to gain access.

Can I still login to my account from anywhere?
Yes, this feature does not prevent you from logging in from any computer. If we do not recognize the computer that you are using then we will simply ask for additional information that only you know (a verification code) before allowing you access to Online Banking.

Update username

You can change your username in the My Settings. Click the Update username link and enter a new username that matches the username guidelines described below, then enter your current password and click Save to change your Online Banking username.

  • Can contain letters, numbers and the following characters: @$*_-=.!~
  • Cannot contain any whitespace (spaces are not allowed: including before, in the middle of, or after the username)

Upon successful entry, an email will be sent to the email address that is on file within Online Banking. This change will take place immediately and be recognized across the Online Banking system.

Update password

Changing your password couldn't be easier. Just click the My Settings tab at the top right of the page and then click Update password. Enter your current password, then the new password and confirm the new password in the fields provided. When everything looks good to you, click the Save to change your password.

  • Must be at least six characters long and no longer than 32 characters

  • Passwords are case sensitive

Like all passwords, it is important to keep your Online Banking password confidential. If you forget your password, you can use the Forgotten Password feature by clicking on the link where you log into Online Banking. Or, you can contact us to receive a new one.

Also, for increased security, periodic password changes may be imposed by us. If you are required to change your password you will be prompted to do so when you log in to your Online Banking session. When this occurs, you will receive a warning message when logging in that your password will soon expire.

Once a phone has been added, it can be enabled for Text Message by clicking Enable for text? When you click that link, you'll receive a text message on your phone with the verification code. You can type in that verification code in the field and click confirm. Your phone is now enrolled for receiving verification codes through text message. If you no longer wish to receive text messages on a phone, remove the phone (if you have more than one phones added) using the Remove (X) icon and add the number back by typing it in the field.

Discovering TurboTax for Online Banking

TurboTax access points are available throughout the Online Banking system (at login, Account Summary, etc.) to help you discover TurboTax.

The TurboTax landing page content will vary depending on whether you are a TurboTax user, have previously accessed the online version of TurboTax and didn't file your return for that year or you have already filed a return for the current tax year.

Each of these will be described in greater detail below.

  • New User - A new user will see a landing page with several tabs that provide a wide variety of product information, a Get Started button, as well as a link for returning TTO customers (individuals who have used TurboTax Online in the past).
  • Returning User - If you started your return using TurboTax through our website for the current year but didn't finish it, you'll see a landing page with a Continue My Return button. There is also a graph and percentage indicator which shows how far along you are in the process of filing your return. The system saved everything that you did so you can continue right where you left off.
  • Completed User - After finishing your taxes, you will see a graph and checkmark on the TurboTax landing page indicating that your tax return was successfully filed. You can use the Go To TurboTax button at any time to check the status of your return or to print or download copies for your records. If eFile was used, you can typically check back in a few days to confirm that your return was accepted by the IRS.

New TurboTax User

The TurboTax landing page for new users provides a number of tabs that describe what the product is, how it works and the benefits of using it. Clicking the Get started button displays the Product Selection page where you can decide which version of TurboTax is best for you: Free, Deluxe, Premier or Home & Business.

NOTE: There is also a link that can be selected if you are a returning TurboTax customer (i.e., you have used TurboTax Online in the past) that answers questions like, will all of my tax data be there?

1. Landing Page

The landing page defaults to the Step by Step Guidance tab but several other tabs are available, as described below.

  • Biggest Refund - The product covers over 350 deductions and some versions search your return to locate any deductions that may have been missed. Some versions offer Its Deductible that sets the real value for any donated item and simplifies the process of logging any medical expenses.

2. Product Selection

Clicking the Get Started button on the landing page displays a product selection feature that helps you determine which version of TurboTax is best for you: Free, Deluxe, Premier, or Home Business. One of the TurboTax products may even be flagged as 'Recommended' for you.

Each product has a brief description and either a Start Now (Free edition) or Start for Free button (all other products) that can be selected to get the process started. However, you can click the Learn more link for any of the products to view additional information.

Clicking the Help me choose link opens a pop-up window that has over a dozen statements with checkboxes that may describe you (e.g., I own a home, I have childcare or medical expenses, I'm self-employed, I sold stocks, etc.). Select everything that best describes you and click the Submit button.

Depending on which checkboxes you selected, the system will suggest the product that best matches your needs and provides a Start button and a Learn more link right in the pop-up window. Within the product informational portion you can read about that product's features. You can either click the Start for Free button to select the recommended product or click the Back to TurboTax products page link to do additional product research.

NOTE: You also have the option of downloading the desktop version of TurboTax to your computer by clicking the link that is provided near the bottom of the page. Selecting a product on the product selection page opens the new or returning user pop-up. Please note that this action will only need to be taken once, meaning that after you have identified yourself as a new or returning TurboTax user it will not have to be done again. If needed, you can click the links to view the Terms and Conditions and Consent to Populate information.

You have to select the Terms and Conditions checkbox to activate the Continue button and access TurboTax Online. However, use of the Consent to Populate checkbox is optional and is offered as a convenience to quickly import your personal and financial data into TurboTax Online. Click the Continue button to access TurboTax Online.

Using TurboTax Online

In all of the TurboTax Online (TTO) editions you will see the TTO Home Page tab with two indicators at the top that display your estimated Federal and State refunds. You will also see your personal tax information displayed along with helpful links that explain the tax filing process and address any questions or concerns you might have.

A Tools button is also available that accesses an array of functions that help with the tax preparation details: Print Return, View Past Returns, Fee Summary, etc. Additional support options can be found in the right column; you can type a question and send to the entire TurboTax user community by clicking the Ask The Community button. Or if needed, you have the option of speaking to a live tax expert by clicking the Ask a Real Live Tax Pro button.

Home tab

There's a series of tabs near the top of the page that track the tax filing process from beginning to end. Starting on the Home tab, when you click the Continue button the next tab will open, and so on until you have finished: Home -- Personal Info -- Federal Taxes -- Federal Review -- State Taxes -- Print / eFile. In the last step, when the taxes are ready for submission, you have the choice to either Efile or Print your return.

NOTE: At any point in the process, you can click the Sign Out link. TurboTax will prompt you to save the data that's been imported or entered thus far. And you can continue right where you left off the next time you access TurboTax.

Federal Taxes tab

Once you review your information on the Personal Info tab, clicking the Continue button opens the Federal Taxes tab. The Federal Taxes tab displays financial information from the following forms, if your financial information supports the form.

  • 1099-INT (Interest income)
  • 1099-DIV (Dividend income)

TTO searches for the above forms within the financial institution's database and then imports all data from the forms that apply to you. You can then review the financial data that was imported from us.

As it states on the screen, you can uncheck any items that no longer apply for that tax year or remove any items that are duplicates. The system supplies N/A if the data is not available.

When you have finished reviewing the data, just click the Continue button to open the Federal Review tab, or if needed, you can always click the Back button to return to the previous tab.

Efile tab

Clicking Continue on the State Taxes tab opens the Print Efile tab. This is where you decide what to do with your Federal refund. Clicking the Continue button should finish the tax preparation process. You can review the forms and edit anything if needed, then you can either eFile or print and mail your return. The only exception to this is if you choose to split your refund (see Split Refund below).

You have several options for handling your refund:

  • Direct Deposit into an account - Just select the radio button for the account you want the refund directly deposited to at your financial institution. This is the recommended refund delivery option.

  • Mail a Check - You can opt to have the refund check mailed to your primary mailing address that is on file at your financial institution.

  • Deposit with another financial institution - You also have the option of depositing the refund at another financial institution of your choice.

  • Split the refund between more than one account - Selecting this option opens another window where you can specify what amount of the refund will go to which accounts. (See Split Refund below).

Split Refund

When you select the checkbox for I would like to split my refund in to more than one account and click the Continue button, a window is opened where you can specify how the refund should be split and where the amounts should be deposited.

Your primary and other accounts from the host financial institution display the current account information by default. The only thing you need to do is enter the dollar amount that should be deposited in each account.

If an amount is to be deposited with a different financial institution, you will need to select the type of account and enter the name of the financial institution, the routing number, account number and dollar amount to be deposited. A look up link is provided for the Routing Number.

When finished, just click the Continue button. Clicking the Continue button finishes the tax preparation process. You can review all of the forms and edit any data as needed, then either eFile or print and mail your return.

Continuing Your Tax Return

There may be occasions when you have to suspend the entry of your tax data to gather additional information and complete the return later. When you click the Sign Out link the system will prompt you to save all of the data that's been imported or entered up to that point.

Clicking the Continue my return button takes you back to where you left off using TurboTax Online Banking.

TurboTax Online Banking will open to the home page tab and you can complete any outstanding tasks within Turbo Tax Online before filing your return. Please refer to the Turbo Tax Online section for additional details.

Completing Your Tax Return

After you have entered or reviewed all of your tax data, clicking the Continue button in the Print Efile tab will finish the tax preparation process. At that point you can review the forms and edit anything if needed, then elect to either eFile or print and mail your return.

When you navigate to the TurboTax for Online Banking landing page after filing your Federal return, the landing page will display a green checkmark under the TurboTax logo, along with a graphic indicator that shows the process is complete.

You can click the Go to TurboTax button anytime to access the TurboTax Online application and check the status of your return.

NOTE: If the return was submitted via eFile, you should have been prompted to check back in a few days to view the status of your return: Accepted or Rejected. If your return was rejected for some reason, TTO will walk you through the process of finding, fixing and resubmitting the return; otherwise TTO will advise you what the next step is.

After Your Tax Return has been Submitted

When you navigate to the TurboTax Online Banking landing page after your Federal return has been submitted, the landing page will display a green checkmark under the TurboTax logo, along with a graphic indicator that shows the process is complete.

You can click the Go to TurboTax button anytime to access the TurboTax Online application and check the status of your return or print or download copies for your records.
