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.
Fraud worries ...

OBSERVATIONS:

1. The "Two Minnesota taxpayors" ... What parties/entities have they shared their Social-Security-Numbers and Employer-Information with?
( i.e. is there any overlapping-commonality here? )

2. This sort of thing must be profitable as evidenced by: "$5.2 billion" and "identity theft rose 135%".

STRONG-OPINION: Intuit-TurboTax ARE Definitely-Innocent.

( i.e. I don't believe there's anything turbotax can do to stop this )

-
SUSPECTING-OPINION:

Everyone is looking for ... The-Buck!

(i.e. banks, health-related-institutes, investment-institutes/hedge-funds, hackers/terrorists, governments, etc.?)

OR

Nothing can surprise me Relating-To: ... Who Is/Are The-Guilty ???

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?

The IRS is a Government sanction criminal organization. Income taxes WERE illegal until the 16th amendment. I would prefer a national VAT or sales tax and elimination the IRS and of all income taxes. In the mean time if the Government gets scammed I would say it serves them right for being greedy bastards.

Instead of getting "E-Filed", now we get "De-Filed"

Good points. I always wondered why cant anyone file directly with this IRS? I mean you can give up all your info and apply for AHC (affordable heath care) And in my state apply for assistance online? Sounds like a scam in this day and age why only turbotax, H&R block and others can only wire this info? Whats up with that?
