Last week I posted Turbo Tax was suspending efiled returns for the State of Minnesota due to fraud concerns. As of late Friday afternoon, Turbo Tax has now suspended efiled returns for all states.
What does this mean for the Turbo Tax user? Generally, your return will stay on the Turbo Tax server until such time as they had a handle on the fraud issues. You can always mail your return, but note, IF you are due a refund it will take longer for the Revenue Department to process a manual return. This filing season was to be “the worst in 30 years” by the Taxpayer Advocate. All we know here in this office is that our clients are coming in much sooner, the IRS has seen a marked increase of efiling over the last year, and more people are owing taxes than ever before.
