Fraud worries ...
Minnesota was among the states that noticed suspicious activity. In a conference call late on Thursday, the state’s Department of Revenue said that it was not accepting online returns via TurboTax. Two Minnesota taxpayers notified the state that they had logged into TurboTax and found that a return had already been filed in their name, according to a CBS Minnesota report.
The IRS estimates that it paid $5.2 billion in fraudulent identity theft refunds during the 2013 tax filing season 2013, according to a Government Accountability Office report released in August 2014.
Identity protection specialist IDT911 told FoxNews.com that identity theft cases rose 135% between 2013 and 2014.
Intuit said it resumed filing of state returns at about 6 p.m. Eastern time Friday with increased fraud protections, a day after it halted them.

The system is archaic why doesn't the irs website have a direct service that works similar or better than turbotax by now?
Why are banks and services like the IRS choosing not to move into the modern era with the rest of the world?
