April 15th is fast approaching, and like millions of Americans, you may be using a software program like TurboTax or H&R Block to prepare your tax return. You may also be using accounting software like Quicken for Home and Business or QuickBooks to keep your accounts in order and still entering your checking and savings transactions manually throughout the year. Here's a step-by-step guide that'll show you how to download your Hanscom Federal Credit Union transactions, which you can then export quickly and easily into your software programs. All you need is a computer with Internet access and your Online Access HD credentials. Ready?

  1. Login into Online Access HD on Hanscom FCU's main page with your login id and password. You'll also have to provide your multi-factor authentication credentials. online access hd link

Keep in mind the latest versions of Quicken, QuickBooks, and TurboTax, along with cloud-based budget trackers like Mint and Clarity Money, can connect automatically to your accounts and download transactions as they occur; check your software documentation or the app's help page for instructions. We also offer an online money manager, My Money Manager, where you can automatically download transactions from other financial institutions, as well as Hanscom FCU.

We hope this tutorial helps with your tax prep this year!
