Are You Ready for Tax Season?

Published: February 3, 2020

April 15th is just a few months away! Here at Santa Clara County Federal Credit Union, we want our members to be prepared for this tax season! The first step is to ensure your account information is up to date and accurate.


  • Correct Address – Confirm your address is up to date with County Federal. If we were a source of earned income or you have a home loan with us, you’ll have a 1099 or 1098. Log on to Online Banking > Click on Your Name > Choose Change Contact Information > Click Address. 

  • Correct Phone Number – Haven’t gotten around to adding your new mobile number? Now is the time to make sure your phone number is correct and you don’t miss out on any important communications.  Log on to Online Banking > Click on Your Name> Choose Change Contact Information

  • Direct Deposit Information – Review your account and routing numbers to confirm your funds will be added to the correct account.

  • Check Categories & Notes – If you’ve used the Category & Note feature in Online Banking, we recommend downloading and reviewing your account notes for any discrepancies over the year.
