Minnesota Turbo Tax issues fixed

| No Comments

Intuit, the maker of tax software Turbo Tax, said Monday it has fixed recent issues with the program that caused problems for Minnesota taxpayers, the Minneapolis/St. Paul Business Journal reports.

Minnesota's Department of Revenue warned taxpayers last week to not use the software until the issues were resolved, and said it found the errors "unacceptable," the Star Tribune reported. The issues included giving political contributions to the wrong party, incorrectly calculating property tax refunds, and other calculation issues.

Taxpayers whose Turbo Tax filings were affected were notified, and will be refunded their tax preparation costs ABC News reports. The company that the program is safe to use for people who haven't filed their returns yet, but that Minnesotans who already used Turbo Tax to file may need to refile.

"We've had all hands on deck to address these issues and reassure the state and our customers that our Minnesota state products are accurate and complete," Intuit Vice President Bob Meighan said in a statement.
