Get your taxes done right with TurboTax

Important note: If you are not already logged on when you click the TurboTax link, you will be prompted to do so. If you get a blank screen, close out the blank window and click the TurboTax link again.

Vanguard has again teamed with Intuit, the makers of America's leading tax-preparation products, to help Vanguard investors—including participants in employer-sponsored retirement plans—prepare and file their taxes with confidence.

Registered vanguard.com users receive TurboTax discounts

Most Vanguard clients will receive discounts of up to $20 off Intuit's list price on TurboTax® tax filing software. Flagship Services and Asset Management Services clients will receive complimentary access to the Federal: Basic, Federal: Deluxe, and State: Basic products. See details below.

Note: To qualify for the Vanguard discount, you must access your TurboTax® OnlineSM return from this page each time you log on to continue or finish your work.

Put TurboTax to work for you

With TurboTax you can be confident that your taxes will be done right. You can count on TurboTax to:

  • Ask simple questions. The program prompts you with easy questions that you already know the answers to, and automatically fills in your information in the correct places.
  • Double check as you go. TurboTax checks and rechecks your return, and TurboTax calculations are guaranteed to be 100% accurate.*
  • Have the answers. With TurboTax you're not alone. If you have questions, TurboTax is there and ready to help.

Returning TurboTax users save time

If you used TurboTax Online last year, your Intuit user ID and password are still valid. When you enter them to file your returns, TurboTax will transfer your tax data from last year's return, reducing your data entry. Learn more about importing data from last year's return. If you forget your TurboTax Online user ID and password, select Need help accessing your account? and follow the instructions.
