State advises against using TurboTax, other Intuit products for Minnesota tax returns


The Minnesota Department of Revenue said Friday to avoid using TurboTax and other Intuit products in preparation of Minnesota Tax Returns, the Minneapolis St. Paul Business Journal reports.

The DOR issued a press release saying, "Intuit has discovered multiple issues with their products. The issues could jeopardize the accuracy of your return or delay your refund."

In addition to TurboTax, the other Intuit product the DOR advises against using are Lacerte, Intuit online and ProSeries.

The state said the advisory applies to Minnesota tax returns filed electronically or on paper.

Those Minnesotans who've already filed returns using Intuit products can call the company at 866-888-4609.

The state said if you've already prepared your taxes using one of the products but haven't filed them yet, wait until the problems with the software have been resolved.
